Mary on Saturday

In one of her visions Christ revealed to the fourteenth century mystic, Julian of Norwich, “the high, marvelous and singular love: he has for this sweet Maiden his Blessed Mother.” And Julian understood that in Mary  “our Lord speaks to all humankind that shall be saved as if it were all to one person, as if he said ‘Do you want to see in her how you are loved?’" Julian invites us to join her in contemplating Mary, “to see in her how we are loved.” Amazingly, wonderfully we are loved by God with the same love that he loves Mary.
