Certainly etched in our memories are the mother’s care for us from our earliest years. No wonder a mother’s love and care has something of sacredness in its very concept.
God has been so wise indeed giving us a mother’s care even in our spiritual needs and pursuits. The Blessed Virgin Mary has been a mother to us believers, more especially in the needs of the spirit, as we all aspire to reach the heavenly heights of God’s eternal kingdom. We entrust ourselves to her motherly care and support, especially in this crucial battle against demonic forces on our way to heaven. The battle is crucial indeed since Satan and his angels tend ever to pull us down to the underworld of the fires of Hell.
