The Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary – June 16

The following excerpt from the book Unborn Jesus Our Hope discusses the relationship between Unborn Jesus and His mother.

Even the physical movements of her Son within her womb, which she could feel, and later even partly observe from without, were as signs of the more profound spiritual and intellectual movements of the soul of Jesus. For His part, Jesus too was experiencing the sense of touch as He would touch the inner wall of Mary’s uterus via the thin veil of the amniotic sac. This divine touch within from within – one can almost envision a Sistine Chapel-like ceiling painting of God, not the Father but the little unborn Son, straining forward and reaching out His tiny finger towards the inner heart of Mary His mother – can almost give shape to God’s way of touching each human heart from deep within. There was a continuous exchange between mother and Child, not only on the physical level but at every level…

In this particular mother Child exchange it was the Child Jesus who was the dominant participant, and His mother was the frequent recipient to the extent that Mary’s life was a reflection, a magnification of the hidden, unborn Divine Life within her.
