Happy Mother's Day!
Mary, the Mother of God

In a speech on May 2, 2010 in Turin, Italy Pope Benedict spoke of the the Virgin Mary as "she who more than any other has contemplated God in the human face of Jesus.

She saw him just after birth, while wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger; she saw him just after death, when after being taken from the cross, they wrapped him in a cloth and took him to the tomb."

"The image of her tormented son was imprinted within her; but this image was then transfigured by the light of the Resurrection," Pope Benedict said. "In this way, the mystery of the face of Christ, mystery of death and glory, was kept in the heart of Mary.

"From her," he taught, "we can always learn to look at Jesus with love and faith, to recognize in that human face the Face of God."

May the Blessed Mother watch over, guide and protect you and your families on this Mother's Day!
