DAILY DEVOTIONS:Oct 12 'First to Love and Serve'

'First to Love and Serve'
...blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.
- Luke 11:28
We honor the Blessed Virgin Mary for her loving service as the mother of our Lord. She was, as Scripture says, the womb that carried Jesus. This is her distinction--the one that no other earthly being can ever repeat. We can, however, imitate Mary's strength and humility. We can follow the example of her ready assent to what God asked of her. Mary of Nazareth listened to the will of God and followed it. She heard the word of God and observed it. In this way, Mary became not only the mother of God, but also the first disciple of Christ. First among all people, she loved and served the Lord Jesus. We strive to do the same. When we seek to follow Jesus, we also follow in the footsteps of his mother.
Holy Mother of God, blessed are you among women. Pray for us, that we may be worthy to follow your son!
