It Is Midday

On the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God… wishing all our visitors a happy and blessed new year 2011.

It is Midday


It is midday. I see the church open. I must enter. Mother of Jesus Christ, I do not come to pray. I have nothing to ask and nothing to offer. I come only, Mother, to look at you.

To look at you, to cry for joy, to know that I am your son and that you are there. Only for a moment while everything stops. Midday!

To be yours, Mary in this place where you are. Saying nothing, but looking at you and letting my heart sing in its own language…

Because it is midday, because we are here today, because you are always there, simply because you are Mary, simply because you exist, Mother of Jesus, be thanked.
