Mary, Mother of God

Today we celebrate the Solemnity of the Mary, the Mother of God.

When did Mary begin to recognize and understand who her son was?
When did she begin to understand the angel's message to her?
How did Mary come to understand that she was the Mother of the Son of God?

Perhaps she began to see more clearly the relationship she shared with Jesus at Cana.
When the wine ran short, the mother of Jesus said to him, "They have no wine." Jesus said to her, "Woman, how does your concern affect me? My hour has not yet come." His mother said to the servers, "Do whatever he tells you."

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us...
