"Woman, behold your son!": Mary in the heart of the history of salvation (part two)

“It was not the sorrows that constituted my Mama as Queen and made Her shine with so much glory, but it was my omnipotent Fiat, which was braided to Her every act and sorrow, and constituted Itself life of each of Her sorrows”.

Under the cross the little woman of Nazareth participates in the "hour" of the Son of God, she lives it as if it were her own, sharing the sufferings of Jesus, submitting herself entirely to the Heavenly Father and offering what is most valuable and meaningful in her life: her son.

Through this donation, Mary reaches the absolute summit of emptying herself, of becoming a servant-mother of the obedient Servant, and of her association with the saving mission of Christ. The suffering and death of Jesus are the suffering and death of Mary's heart; Mary on Calvary joins the sacrifice of her son, consenting, trough an act of extreme love, to the immolation of the victim she generated in the flesh.

Throughout her life, the Virgin Mary wrote many extraordinary pages of dedication and oblation to God. Mary Most Holy experienced suffering, wanderings in faith, the dark nights: from her unconditional yes at the Annunciation, to her silent and painful yes on Golgotha. At the foot of the cross the Holy Virgin shares the attitudes of Christ, and these attitudes are for her a sword that pierces her spirit deeply. Mary understands the meaning of what is happening and experiences the tragic event of the sacrifice of the cross in and with Christ, her son. She brings to the climax, with the strength of the Spirit, her intrepid faith, her unshakable hope, her strong and compassionate love. The passion of Jesus becomes her passion. In truth, she had already experienced it during her existence when she learned to set free the one he generated, putting herself aside and leaving Him to her mission. Therefore, Mary is ready for the mystery of the cross, that does not end at Calvary. Christ remains a sign of contradiction until the end of time and the Virgin Mary is fully involved in this contradiction in her messianic motherhood.

Luisa, in her Diary many times, speaks of the suffering of Mary and Jesus, and in a wonderful way she explains it to us. On March 23, 1923, Jesus told Luisa that He was the first King of sorrows, and being Man and God, He had to centralize everything within Him in order to have primacy over everything, even over sorrows. Those of the Virgin Mary were nothing other than the reverberations of His which, being reflected in Her, made Her share in all Jesus’ sorrows which, piercing Her, filled Her with such bitterness and pain that She felt Herself dying at each reverberation of Jesus’ sorrows. But love sustained Her and gave Her life again. Therefore, not only for honor, but also by right of justice, She was the first Queen of the immense sea of Her sorrows.” While He was saying this, Luisa seemed to see the Virgin Mary in front of Jesus, and everything that Jesus contained, the sorrows and the piercings of that Most Holy Heart, were reflected in the Heart of the sorrowful Queen. At those reflections, many swords formed in the Heart of the pierced Mama; and these swords were marked by a Fiat of light, in which She remained circumfused, in the midst of so many Fiats of most refulgent light which gave Her so much glory that there are no words to narrate it.

Then, Jesus continued, saying that it was not the sorrows that constituted our celestial Mother as Queen and made Her shine with so much glory, but it was the omnipotent Fiat, which was braided to Her every act and sorrow, and constituted Itself life of each of Her sorrows. So, the Divine Fiat was the first act that formed the sword, giving Her the intensity of pain that It wanted. The Divine  Fiat could place all the sorrows It wanted in that pierced Heart, adding piercings upon piercings, pains upon pains, without a shadow of the slightest resistance. On the contrary, She felt honored that the Fiat would constitute Itself life of even a heartbeat of Hers; and the Fiat gave Her complete glory and constituted Her true and legitimate Queen.

Now, who will be the souls in whom Jesus can reflect the reverberations of His sorrows and of His very Life? Those who will have the Fiat as life. This Fiat will make them absorb His reflections, and He will be generous in sharing with them that which the Divine Will operates in Him. Therefore, in the Divine Will Jesus awaits souls, to give them the true dominion and the complete glory of each act and pain that they may suffer. The operating and suffering outside of the Divine Will He does not recognize; He could say: ‘I have nothing to give you; what is the will that animated you in doing and suffering this? Get your reward from that one.’ Many times, doing good or suffering, if the Divine Will is not present in them, can be miserable slaveries which degenerate into passions, while it is the Divine Will alone that gives true dominion, true virtues, true glory, such as to transform the human into divine.

Mary’s sufferings on Golgotha is the icon of all suffering, which together with the suffering offered by Christ to the Father, becomes a moment of redemption and opens the doors to the certain hope of the triumph of life over death.
