This is what I envision the young Mary to look like. The one who the Angel Gabriel visited.

Susan's Blog

Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for your children now,
and at the hour of our death.

Yes, I tweaked the wording just a little bit. Some may consider it sacrilige—but not me. The Mary I have come to know and love does not call her children sinners. She calls them divine sparks of God who have forgotten who they are.

She knows it is easy for we humans to lose our way in this harsh and unforgiving world. But that does not change her love for us. Nor, does she scold, she just waits for us to choose to return to her heart and to the heart of the Divine Father.

The words of the Hail Mary are honoring her. Often it is the only way some folks know how to pray to her. But what a lovely way to pray (except for the sinner part).

In looking up the meaning of the word grace I found the following in Websters Dictionary:

a: Unmerited divine assistance given humans for their regeneration or sanctification.

b : a virtue coming from God

c : a state of sanctification enjoyed through divine grace

The meaning (b) resonates with me the most. A virtue coming from God. It makes me think about the purity of Mary's soul to be chosen to be the bearer of Jesus. Certainly we can learn from her life as the Mother of Jesus.

But I also feel Mary is the bestower of Grace to each of us as well. Especially when she continually reminds us that we are her child, even when we play in the mud puddles. Instead of scolding, she helps us get cleaned up and asks us if we've had fun. What child wouldn't want a mother like that?
