Our Mother Who Art

discovering the female in God through thinking about Mary -

Our Mother Who Art

​On the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe a prayer is uttered ….for those of us of a more Protestant mind which sees engagement with the Blessed Virgin as a corrective to an overly patriarchal God it seems to me one we can adopt and address to God as Mother.

You are the mother

of the dark and the light

the rich and the poor
the humble and proud.

You are the mother
of the young and the old
the strong and the weak
of those who rejoice
of those who weep.

You are the mother
of woman and man
of small and of great
of broken and whole.
You are the mother who art.
