To Pray in Communion with Mary [] March 24, 2021

Dear brothers and sisters, good morning!

Today the catechesis is dedicated to prayer in communion with Mary.  It occurs precisely on the Vigil of the Solemnity of the Annunciation.  We know that the main pathway of Christian prayer is the humanity of Jesus.  In fact, the confidence typical of Christian prayer would be meaningless if the Word had not become incarnate, giving us in the Spirit His filial relationship with the Father.  We heard in the Scripture of the gathering of the disciples, the pious women and Mary, praying after Jesus' Ascension.  The first Christian community was awaiting Jesus' gift, Jesus' promise.

Christ is the Mediator.  Christ is the bridge that we cross to turn to the Father (see Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2674).  He is the only Redeemer: there are no co-redeemers with Christ.  He is the only one.  He is the Mediator par excellence.  He is the Mediator.  Each prayer we raise to God is through Christ, with Christ and in Christ and it is fulfilled thanks to His intercession.  The Holy Spirit extends Christ's mediation through every time and every place: there is no other name by which we can be saved: Jesus Christ, the only Mediator between God and humanity (see Acts 4:12).

Due to Christ's one mediation, other references Christians find for their prayer and devotion take on meaning, first among them being the Virgin Mary, the Mother of Jesus.
