CHRISTMAS WITH MAMMA MARY – Introduction – Dec 04

The festive season is on…

… the cool air – reminding of the Spirit that hovered at Genesis – blows fast…

… the end of the year – reminding of the need to count blessings – is near at sight…

… the Advent season – reminding of the Desire of the Lord to dwell in us – is already here…

Yes! It is Christmas Time!

Every Christmas is a time for us to celebrate the magnanimity of God’s Love for each one of us…

… revealed in Jesus Christ, the Babe “Who was born for us!” (Lk 2:11)

And perhaps one of the best ways to celebrate Christmas would be to travel with Mother Mary, the One “Who was Highly Favoured” (Lk 1:28).

Yes, let us celebrate, “CHRISTMAS WITH MAMMA MARY!”

This Season of Advent, we hold the Hands of our Blessed Mamma through the Four Marian Dogmas that have been proclaimed by the Church.

(Marian Dogma is a definitive article of faith in relation to Mother Mary, that has been solemnly promulgated as a doctrine as necessary for the belief of all Catholic faithful)

There are Four Marian Dogmas that the Church has promulgated:

a. The Immaculate Conception of Mary

b. The Perpetual Virginity of Mary

c. The Assumption of Mary

d. Mary, the Mother of God

And as we seek to know and understand Mother Mary more, through these Four Dogmas…

1. We will grow in the Love for the Lord…

… because She always tells: “Do whatever He tells you” (Jn 2:5)

2. We will begin to experience the Joy of the Lord’s Presence…

… because Her presence will make us like Baby John the Baptist “to leap for joy” (Lk 1:44)

3. We will have greater meaning and understanding of our Life…

… because She is always with us in our struggles just as “She was at the foot of the Cross of Jesus” (Jn 19:25)

This “CHRISTMAS WITH MAMMA MARY” will have the following structure:

1. Thoughts to Think – Describing the content

2. Pointers to Ponder – Musing on some questions of reflection

3. Connecting to Christmas – Mentioning about a Christmas entity and connect them to the content that is described

4. Actions to Achieve – Enumerating two or three practical points for life.

So let’s begin our journey of “Christmas with Mamma Mary,” being inspired by the beautiful quote of Venerable Fulton Sheen:

“There is, actually, only One Person in all humanity of whom God has one picture and in whom there is a perfect conformity between what He wanted Her to be and what She is…

… and that is His Own Mother.

>> Mary was thought, conceived, and planned as the equal sign between ideal and history, thought and reality, hope and realization!”

Let us hold Mamma’s Hands and learn from Her, as we pray:

“Maranatha! Come, Lord Jesus…

… Be born in me, this Christmas!”

God Bless! Live Jesus!
