For our beautiful Mother, Mary…

The Catholic Me

God could have come to the world any way He wanted. He wanted to come through Mary.

Mother. Son. Mary. Jesus. Inextricably connected. Where there is Jesus, you will find Mary. Where there is Mary, you will find Jesus. Without Mary, there is no Jesus. Without Jesus, there is no Mary. 

You can’t have one without the other…


Mary the Dawn, Christ the Perfect Day;

Mary the Gate, Christ the Heav’nly Way!

Mary the Root, Christ the Mystic Vine;

Mary the Grape, Christ the Sacred Wine!

Mary the Wheat-sheaf, Christ the Living Bread;

Mary the Rose-Tree, Christ the Rose Blood-red!

Mary the Font, Christ the Cleansing Flood;

Mary the Chalice, Christ the Saving Blood!

Mary the Temple, Christ the Temple’s Lord;

Mary the Shrine, Christ the God adored!

Mary the Beacon, Christ the Haven’s Rest;

Mary the Mirror, Christ the Vision Blest!

Mary the Mother, Christ the Mother’s Son.
