Weekly Reflection – Pentecost and Mary!
As we prepare for Pentecost this weekend, I was captured by Br. Michael Green’s insight in a recent article, “ Something new for our time”. He notes that the first Marists identified themselves with Mary of Pentecost.
It is Mary, standing with the literally dis-Spirited, who has the faith, hope and love to be with the l’Eglise naissante (early Church) . She is not at its centre – at least not structurally or functionally – but at its heart.
It is critical as women and men integral to the mission of the Marists within the Catholic Church that we are reminded of Mary’s presence in the Church as it ‘comes to birth’ in new ways for our time.
As Marists, we regard “Mary as our sister in faith and our companion on life’s journey” (p. 17-18, Green). In our own fragile and often stumbling ways, we seek to be Mary for the Church and for the world by bring Jesus to others. As we celebrate Pentecost and soon after Champagnat week (June 6) we might pray to be more Marian ourselves by being present at the heart of our Church as the Spirit of the Risen Jesus continues to move among us.
