Mary’s Agony in the garden…

Posted: September 8, 2018 by CatholicJules in Life's Journeys, Personal Thoughts & Reflections

On this day we celebrate the Nativity of our Blessed Mother Mary whom we love and honour with grateful hearts for her continued love and intercession for us.

This morning after attending a grace filled Eucharistic Celebration I sought out Father for the Sacrament of reconciliation and headed home feeling truly light and elated, with light rain falling like a blessing from heaven as confirmation.

Then I recalled this vision I had while meditating on the sorrowful mystery of the rosary a few months back which I felt to be personally profound. It is only now that I am prompted to share on this special day.

*Agony in the Garden*

We know that our Blessed Mother united her own sufferings with Christ Jesus her son. Through her own profound sorrow and pain there was great redemptive power and grace released for us her children.

The vision I had was a glimpse into Mary’s own agony in the ‘garden’…

I saw Mary our mother kneeling and weeping below the tree which hung her beloved Son. A garden of souls all around waiting to be saved. Her heart was in great agony for love of her Son and for the rest of humanity which pierced it so. She would willingly have given up her own life if it would save her son but knew and trusted that God our Father had other plans for Him as He did for her. She willingly accepted the will of her Son to be the mother of us all. Many of us might have one time or another experienced excruciating mental anguish which is far worse than physical pain, still this would not even be close to that which our Blessed Mother experienced. Still she remained faithful and loving till the end and beyond.

Dearest mother we love and thank God for you. Happy Blessed birthday!
