Mary’s Bundle of Joy
What mother does not think the world of her toddler? Yet, no mother could have possibly loved her child more than Mary did, knowing that her child was her Lord. I placed Mary in the enclosure of a garden enjoying the child, Jesus. She is playing with Him, perhaps spinning Him around.
She is enraptured by her love for Jesus. Although she is alone with Him in her garden, Jesus is looking at us to invite us into our own private garden.
By developing an interior life we are preparing an enclosed garden. It is here that we enjoy being with the Lord, and it is here that we cultivate the virtues to flower.
