Mary and the Mass

I have no doubt that Our Lady was a devout communicant until her death and assumption. However, I do not picture her in a mantilla with St John offering Mass with the kitchen table pushed up against the wall. It was for her, as for us, about participating in the sacrificial love of Christ at Calvary and in His joyous Risen and Real Presence. This participation equipped her and us for our daily and weekly living. Mary and the Mass can also remind us that for 9 months she was a walking tabernacle. She nursed the Word made flesh, and thus is a model for our worship in the first half of Mass as well as the second! She is also a model for our going out into the world at the end, because she is the perfect disciple.
