Causa Nostrae Laetitae – Ora Pro Nobis

2015.07.11 BVM Cause of our joy (web)

Why is Mary the cause of our joy?  She is the channel of grace and mercies that God wishes to give to us.  Jesus is the author of grace but Mary his Mother is the mediatress of all graces.  Therefore, St. Bernard compared our Blessed Mother to an aqueduct through whom we receive hope, salvation, and grace since God has entrusted the whole treasure of his graces to her.  (The Glories of Mary by St. Alphonsus de Liguori)

Let us rejoice and praise God for giving us this great Queen, the Cause of all our joy.
