The problem of pain isn't new. Mary can help us there, too. She saw her Son die, and she saw her Son raised. She witnessed mankind's greatest redemption. But she is also our Mother, and she witnesses our pain with the same tender care and compassion as she witnessed the pain of her Son on the cross.
She whispers gently to us that saying yes may not be easy. But our yes, no matter how big or how small, is a beautiful, vital part of God's redemption story. She assures us that we are never alone in our journey to be faithful. Even if, and especially when, it hurts.
