How can we see Mary as a first responder?
We describe a faith first-responder as someone who is present to others on their terms. Who brings them the help and information they need. A first responder accompanies someone in their pain, on their journey, and as they need it.
Each May, we celebrate Mary in a special way. She is the perfect May Queen, the bearer of Life Himself. But her life is marked by many messages. We’ll focus on three; her receptivity, her activity, and her love.
We see this in the moments of the Annunciation, the Visitation, and the Crowning in Heaven.
Mary is the perfect first-responder.
