Topic : Mary, Model of all Christians

The only three birthdays that we celebrate are of course Christmas, the birthday of Jesus, then we celebrate the birth of John the Baptist, and we celebrate the birthday of Mary. With these birthdays we see the importance of these people. Jesus, of course is the most important as he is the one who gives us salvation. John the Baptist is the last prophet and he is the one who prepared the way for Christ. Now Mary in the church is not just because she is the mother of God, the mother of Christ, but the church sees her also as the model of all Christians and we are all expected to model our lives towards her and that is to try to follow her prayer life. Mary is a person who is filled with prayer. Without prayer we would say that she would not have come to know the will of God, she would not have experienced God. Hence her prayer life is something that we need to model upon as the person of prayer. Mary with the Magnificat that she prayed also shows that she is one who is a very prayerful person and so for us especially, legionaries, we too need to emulate this prayerfulness.

Secondly, Mary is docile to God, with her ‘yes’ to the Angel Gabriel. We see that she is docile and she is willing to follow what God has in store for her. We too need to be docile to God, we too need to bend ourselves to God and not always follow out own way and so need to follow Mary in that sense.

So we have Mary who is prayerful, Mary who is docile and then Mary who is of service to others. We see this in her going to her cousin Elizabeth to help her. We see Mary also of service in the wedding feast of Cana where she was thinking of the couple. So for us we also need to see that we are of service to the people around us. Especially for us legionaries, we should see ourselves as the hands of God and to be of service to others and not just think of our own selves. So for us especially as legionaries we should model ourselves very closely to our Mother and as we celebrate her birthday, remember what the church wants of us and that is to model our selves to our Queen and our Mother and so we should try our very best to follow her in these three virtues: of prayer, of service, and of docility or obedience to God. Amen.
