“She gave birth to her firstborn son”: Mary’s son, firstborn in the new creation (first part)

“She would run in order to never leave me, even in my breath, and I would call her. For me her Motherhood was a need, a relief, a support for my life down here.”

Mary gave birth to her firstborn son, wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn (Lk 2:7).

The son whom Mary gives birth to belongs to the Lord in two ways. On the one hand, Jesus is the Son of the Most High, while on the other He is the firstborn male whom Mary, as a Jewish woman fully participating in the faith of her people, considers as her son to be given and consecrated to the Lord in compliance with the Mosaic law and in memory of the liberation from the slavery in Egypt.

It concerns a birthright not only in the flesh as the son of Mary but also, and above all in the logic of new creation, regenerated by the blood shed on the cross. Christ, the image of the invisible God, is the firstborn of many brothers who in Him and thanks to Him rise from the dead. The little woman of Nazareth, as an obedient servant of the Lord, allows Jesus to fully become the firstborn among many brothers by giving Him flesh and making it possible through her to acquire the nature of a creature that allows Him to share in what was created in view of Him.

In the cave at Bethlehem, for the first time, a creature’s gaze settles on the face of her Creator. Mary's eyes, vibrant with love, envelop and contemplate the body of the Son of God. In her dark and deep eyes shines the joy of a century-long wait that has finally come to fulfillment. The Virgin gazes upon the fruit of her womb to cover it with sweetness and love, but once again it turns out that she is the recipient and not the dispenser. She realizes she is being looked at, sought after and loved from all eternity and so plunges into the infinite sea of the heart of God. Only a person like Mary, resplendent with holiness and overflowing with Grace, could be granted the extraordinary privilege of welcoming on earth the Son of the Eternal One.

On December 28, 1938 (the last passage of Luisa’s Diary), Jesus wants to reveal to Luisa the great wonder of His love and why nothing escapes Him. He wants her to know to what lengths the Heavenly Mother's Maternity goes, what she has done, how much it has cost her and still costs her.

The great Queen not only acted as a mother by conceiving Jesus and giving birth to Him, by feeding Him with her milk, and giving Him all the possible cares that were needed in His childhood; this was not enough for her Motherly love or for the love of her Son. Therefore, her motherly love ran in the mind of Jesus, and if afflicted thoughts made Him sad she would spread her Motherhood in each one of His thoughts, hide them in her love, kiss them, and Jesus would feel His mind hidden under her Maternal wing that never left Him alone. Every one of His thoughts had His mother who loved Him and gave Him all her Motherly cares. Her Motherhood would extend into His every breath and heartbeat. And if His breath and heartbeat were suffocated by love and pain, she would run with her Maternity to prevent Him from suffocating for love and to place a balm on His pierced Heart. When Jesus looked, spoke, worked, and walked, Mary would run to receive in her Maternal love the gazes of her Son, His words, works and steps and invest them with her Maternal love. She would hide these all in her Heart and be a Mother to Him. She would make her Maternal love run even in the food she prepared for Him, so that as He ate He would feel her Motherhood that loved Him.

And then, there was not one pain or drop of blood that Jesus poured forth in which He did not feel His dear Mother. After performing the office of Mother, she would take His sufferings and blood and hide them in her Motherly Heart to love them and continue her Maternal office.

Jesus’ love for His Mother was so great that He wasn’t able to be in everything that He did without feeling her Motherhood together with Him. She would run so as to never leave Him alone, even in His breathing, and He would call her. For Jesus her Motherhood was a need, a relief, and a support for His life here on Earth.
