We all have a mother who loves us — Ina, our Mama Mary. - Daily Bible Reflections August 22, 2016

Memorial of the Queenship
of the Blessed Virgin Mary
We boast of you in the churches of God regarding your endurance and faith in all your persecutions and the afflictions you endure. – 2 Thessalonians 1:3-4
       We Bicolanos are blessed to have two titles with which we honor our Ina (Mother), whom we run to in times of joy and sorrow. One is the more widely known Virgin of Peñafrancia which is enshrined in Naga City. Her feast day is on the third Sunday of September celebrated region-wide.
       Recently, I rediscovered another title of our Mother, exclusively for the Albayanos. She is “Our Lady of Salvation” in Joroan, Tiwi, a well-known pilgrimage site in Albay.
       Mama Mary is a towering example of a Mother whose fiat (“Let it be done”) made salvation history possible. Her yes allowed the birth of our Savior and Lord. It was not a picnic for a teenage mother to be pregnant out of wedlock in a society that would stone her to death for this supposed crime. Yet, in all the persecutions and sufferings she went through, her faith grew. God honored her by making her the Queen of Heaven.
       Mothers, let us do our mission as ina in the best way we can, by holding on to faith as our best example of motherhood. Then, for sure, we are “queens” in our earthly families. Grace Princesa (grprincesa @yahoo.com)
Reflection: We all have a mother who loves us — Ina, our Mama Mary.
Lord, thank You for our Mother and Queen.
St. Andrew the Scot, pray for us.
