Because you are God’s child, you are a saint in the making. Also, because you are God’s child, you are Mary’s child. The two go hand in hand. Mary does not love you because you are a saint; she loves you whether or not you are a saint. She loves you even if you were the most wretched, hateful sinner to ever walk the earth! If you need help, she will help you. If you call out to her, she will come to your rescue. If you are ill, she will cure you. It may not happen in exactly the timing and manner in which you prefer, but it will happen. It will happen according to God’s will for you through Mary’s intercession and the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
