It took me 10 years to see Philippians 2:6-11 as a scriptural basis for Marian Consecration; something I had wrestled with for years. So if you are wrestling with this now, relax, keep your eyes on Jesus - and follow. Imagine with me what Jesus might say:
Does it help you to know I was present as she was knit together in her mother’s womb? Does it calm your fears to think of how I smiled to watch her grow? If you would follow me, approach her with humility - like me. If you would imitate me, entrust yourself to her completely, like I did. If my body was formed in her womb, is it so difficult to imagine I am pleased to allow my mystical body to be formed in her heart?
Today give 5 minutes to ponder following Jesus.
He sets aside his majesty; you set aside your__________?
He empties himself of his power and strength; you empty yourself of__________?
He humbles himself to encounter Mary, will you?Lord, help me keep my eyes on you and follow your example here.
