During the month of May, as Catholics, we in a special way honor and remember our blessed Mother. She was the first and the greatest believer. Mary was not only given the great privilege to bring the mother of God, but she gave her life as a constant yes to God. We need to remember how much it must have filled her with questions and fear. Mary demonstrates by her actions her great faith in God. Mary should inspire us to have that same kind of faith. We can pray to Mary asking her powerful intercession that we can be greater people of faith. Sometimes, God asked us to go beyond our comfort zone, to push our limits, to ask us to do what we think is impossible. Through Mary’s intercession and by her example, let’s pray that we too can take those leaps of faith and say yes to God.
