Minute Meditations

Mary Finds Us


In the empty spaces, Mary will meet you there. What I have learned mystifies me. I only need to allow the Blessed Mother to do what she wants to do: comfort me. It’s understandable why Mary, Untier of Knots, has become a part of our lives. My inability to concentrate, the grief I feel over the loss of a parent, over leaving a job of 25 years, have led me to a new place. I’ve been a “spiritual seeker” for a long time, and I thought I had to work hard to find my mother.

I had it backward. It is our mother who will never forget. It is our mother who will always find her child. Hand her your ribbon.
