WHAT DOES THE NAME “MARY” MEAN?
“And the Virgin’s name was Mary (Lk 1:27).”
In Hebrew, Mary means “Star of the Sea”.
And in Syriac, it means “Lady”.
And with reason for in her womb she bore the Lord of the universe and the undimming Light of the world to all peoples.
As all mothers desire that their children are always near them, even if they are already grown-ups, let us always have recourse to our Mother, calling her name, not only when we are in need, but in every moment of our life, as a manifestation of our filial love and devotion.
Mother Mary. we call upon you as always. Despise us not in our necessities, but ever help us in all our endeavours. Lead us safely to our heavenly port.
Fr. Rolly Arjonillo.
