Mary’s encounter with the angels was filled with fear and awe. Did she realize these emotions would dominate her life? Jesus’ relationship with his mother and what she experienced leads our thought and celebration of Mother’s Day. Mary goes through a roller coaster of emotions as she follows Jesus through his ministry, mission, death and resurrection. I imagine that most mothers go through a roller coaster of emotions, as they watch their children mature. It had to be exceptional for Mary whose son was also the Son of GOD.
