“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all” (2 Corinthians 13:14). On a day like this one may be wondering what could be the relationship between the Blessed Trinity and the Blessed Virgin Mary. Our simple catechism gives us an answer to clear any element of doubt that may becloud our thoughts, feelings and behaviours. First, it explains the nature of our God. It never defines God but states clearly how God has revealed Himself to us as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (Matt. 28:19). So, what is the link between the Blessed Trinity and the Blessed Virgin Mary? The traditional connection says, Mary is the Daughter of God the Father, she is the Mother of God the Son and she is the Spouse of God the Holy Spirit. We can go further to explain the foregoing relationship via Luke 1:26-38. Therefore, let us move into this passage and unraveled the relationship between the Trinity and the Blessed Virgin Mary.

In (Luke 1:26-29), we see the relationship of the Blessed Trinity and our Mother Mary. Here, God the Father sent the Angel Gabriel to honour Mary through the angelic salutation, “Hail full of grace, the Lord is with you.” By this salutation, Mary our Mother enjoys the favour of God and she is now the embodiment of God’s graces. All the graces of God are assembled in her. Hence, we invoke her to magnet from her wealth of unquantifiable graces that were placed in her being forever. Mother, inspire us to keep looking up to God for all divine favours, graces and everlasting blessings as we invoke your name by saying countlessly: Hail Mary Full of Grace … Amen.

In (Luke 1:30-34), The Blessed Virgin Mary is being promised to conceive and bear the Son of God. In her body the Son of God grew and was nourished. Mother is blessed to be the channel for the fulfilment of God’s promises as contained in the Old Testament, especially “The Lord will give you a sign in any case: It is this: the young woman is with child and will give birth to a son whom she will call Immanuel” (Is. 7:14). In Mary are the possibilities for the fulfilment of God’s promises. Mother attract from God the fulfilment of His promises in our lives. Amen.

Finally in (Luke 1:35-38) the overshadowing of the Blessed Mother by the Holy Spirit remains a unique sign of her relationship with the Holy Spirit in particular and the Blessed Trinity. It is at this point that she utters her powerful words of total consecration to the Trinity: “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” Mother assist us to completely give ourselves to the Blessed Trinity by following your footsteps. Amen.

Action plan: The relationship of the Blessed Trinity and the Blessed Virgin Mary teaches us how to relate with God at all levels and spheres of our lives. What we need now is Trinitarian integration! This is a special element for our final task in the spiritual life.
