When Mary was standing near the cross of Jesus, she reached the full measure of her vocation as Mother of Mercy. On Golgotha, we discover her unique place in salvation history.
We evoke this unique place she holds every time we say the Hail Mary, when we ask her to pray for us “now and at the hour of our death,” in the same way that she was there at the time of the death of Jesus
Whenever we utter these words, even if we do not think about them precisely, the Virgin Mary hears them.
The Mother of Mercy watches over the destiny of each and every one of us and the only thing that is expected of us is to leave the door of our heart—the door of our “yes”—open.
