338
MARY – OUR MOTHER AND MODEL OF OUR VOCATION
Leader: Praised be Jesus Christ
All: And Mary, His Mother
Opening Prayer
Lord, we come before you to make a simple offering of our lives to
you. In the events of our lives may we be attuned to receive your word
and respond generously as Mary did. May the gifts that you continue to
give us be a source of new life and hope to all we meet. Amen.
Psalm: From Article 4 of our Marist Constitutions – “Our Marial
Spirit”
Antiphon: Mary lived out her whole life in the spirit of her “Fiat”.
(C. Art. 38)
Left: Our Founder gave us the name of Mary because he wanted us to
live according to her spirit. He was convinced that she had done
everything for us, and so he called her our Ordinary Resource and our
First Superior.
Right: We contemplate the life of our Mother and Model, in order to
absorb her spirit. Since she was the perfect disciple of Christ, her
attitudes become the inspiration and guide for our own way of living
and acting.
All: God gave his Son to the world through Mary. So we strive to make
her known and loved as a way which leads directly to Jesus. In this
way we put into action our motto: “All to Jesus through Mary; all to
Mary for Jesus.”
Antiphon: Mary lived out her whole life in the spirit of her “Fiat”.
Psalm: From Article 18 of our Marist Constitutions – “With Mary and
Our Founder”
Antiphon: As Marist Brothers, we come to Mary, the Handmaid of the
Lord, to be schooled by her, and we respond to her call.
Left: Mary, chosen by God to be totally his, is the model of our own
consecration. At the Annunciation she welcomed the Word of the Lord in
faith, and abandoned herself joyfully and lovingly to the action of
the Holy Spirit by the total gift of herself.
Right: As woman and mother, she knew the joys and trials of life. She
lived at Jesus’ side, with total trust in the Father, even to the foot
of the Cross. Living in the glory of the Risen Christ, she is in a
very special way the Mother of those who consecrate themselves to God.
Left: Having dedicated ourselves to her, and convinced that she is
interceding for us
to persevere in our fidelity, we continue to thank her for the gift of
our vocation.
Right: Our Founder, who learned so much from Mary, will always be for
us a model of an unreserved gift of oneself to God, and of devotedness
to others. His own life
exemplifies the ideal he set before his first followers: “To become a
brother is to
dedicate oneself to becoming holy.”
Antiphon: As Marist Brothers, we come to Mary, the Handmaid of the
Lord, to be schooled by her, and we respond to her call.
Reading: From “Redemptionis Donum” (Pope John Paul II)
======================================================
If the entire Church finds in Mary her first model, all the more
reason do you find her so – you as consecrated individuals and
communities within the Church! I address myself to you with this
present message, to invite you to renew your
religious consecration according to the model of the very consecration
of the
Mother of God. Persevering in fidelity to him who is faithful, strive
to find a
very special support in Mary! For she was called by God to the most
perfect
communion with his Son. May she, the faithful Virgin, also be the
Mother of
your evangelical way: may she help you to experience and to show to
the world
how infinitely faithful is God himself.
Prayers: Let us take time to place our prayers before Mary, our Good
Mother,
Response: Mary, intercede for us.
*
Let us pray in thanksgiving for the gift of our vocation and for
the experiences in our lives which have spoken of Mary’s maternal
presence guiding and supporting us.
*
Let us pray in thanksgiving for the ways in which Mary’s trust in
the Lord has brought us closer to Jesus.
*
Let us pray that Mary’s attitudes will always be the inspiration
and guide for our own way of living and acting.
*
Let us pray that Mary “the inspiration of our vocation work” (C.
94) will draw new members to our community.
(Pause to add your own intentions.)
Hail Mary
Closing Prayer:
---------------
Father, as we celebrate the memory of Mary, Our Good Mother, fill us
with her faith and trust in your love. By the help of her prayers, and
the example of her life we ask that you call young men to join us in
our service of your people. We pray in communion with all our brothers
And our founder, today and always. Amen!
