Our Lady is our Mother, explains St Josemaria, and as such she teaches us how to walk in the life of faith. The video was filmed in Valencia, Spain, on November 16, 1972.
- Father, I read in The Way that our Lady is our path to Jesus.
Could you explain that a little?
- You could tell me yourself, I'm sure you'd tell me straight away. You'd give me lots of reasons. When you first learned to walk, who went along behind you, like this...?
- My mother.
Sometimes she lets you fall down, so you realize you need her, you can't walk on your own, you need your mother.
- And if you stumbled, did she let you fall down?
- No, she caught you! And sometimes, look, maybe she sometimes let you fall down, so you would realize you needed her, you couldn't walk on your own, you needed your mother. And our Lady does the same, sometimes, if we are not very devout, she just lets us realize... not big offenses against her Son..., and not if we love her! And then we keep closer to her, we hold onto her skirt, and then we can walk safely. That's why she is the way. Is that what you wanted to know?
