Mary, the pamperer

Today as we celebrate the feast of Mary Help of Christians, I was reflecting on the role of Mother Mary in the life of Don Bosco and the Salesians.  She actually has been a great pamperer of the Salesians, beginning with Don Bosco!!  There is hardly anything that Don Bosco wanted Her to do, She did not do.  The same down the ages.

In a way I think it is from her own attitude that she receives such 'do it' commands and she 'obeys'.  Take the instance at the wedding feast in Cana.  "They have no wine."  Unmindful of what Jesus responds, she tells the servants, "Do what he tells you!"  No big discussion or convincing him that He ought to do something.  No motivational speeches.  Just a statement and then a direct order!

You reap what you sow!

Happy feast!
