I just love the look of the Infant Jesus on His Mother’s face. A look that speaks volumes indeed. Our Lady remains silent, pondering in her heart this great mystery. . . does she know what lies ahead? She too has said, Let it be done unto me according to thy word.
If I may let my imagination run, perhaps our Lord may be heard saying to His Mother and to us. . .
Mother, we are in this together. We are giving ourselves completely to saving the world. See this globe that I am holding. It has the sign of the Cross. I shall lay down my life as a true Friend to the world. Greater love no man has than this, and the world will know that I have come to save all sinners.
I have come to heal the sick. I have come to liberate captives. I have come to draw my people out of darkness into my own wonderful light. Will they know how much I love them? Will they return my love? Mother, we are in this together!
My people, I have loved you with an everlasting love.
