No one can say that he loves GOD if he does not keep His Commandments and does not appreciate or even spurns His Sacraments, which He bequeathed to His Church for Christian life. No one served GOD so pleasingly as Mary did! It has pleased GOD, the LORD, to take flesh through a most pure virgin (as befits GOD) and to be born of her according to the flesh. It pleased Him that she, whom He called His Mother and calls such to all eternity and loves in a divine manner, should also be honoured and loved by us men as His and our heavenly Mother.
GOD Himself is fatherly and motherly. The SON of GOD showed us the fatherly love of GOD, and through the Mother of GOD he wants to let us know His motherly love. GOD spoke: „Honour your father and your mother so that it may go well with you and that you may live long on earth!“ How do you believe it would be if CHRIST Himself disdained this in His natural Mother? Thus it simply goes without saying that GOD now bestows on His beloved earthly Mother all divine love and glory which He is able to give her as GOD and as her heavenly Son. And what GOD does is always to be loved and to be praised!
We know that GOD likes to exalt, of all things, the insignificant. And since Mary had once been of too little significance for certain angels to have been willing to recognize her as their Empress, GOD has raised her so high above the Angels, what is terrible now for these fallen angels. And now the same is happening again on the part of men. Is it possible then that a human being is capable of having too low an opinion of Mary, whom GOD found worthy to be born of, and whom He honours and loves as His Mother? If someone prefers to think like that, my GOD, this even outmatches Lucifer’s pride!
Come, let us love and honour her with our whole heart also as our heavenly Mother!
Speak to her what the Angel spoke to her by GOD’s command:
