Once again we recall the special significance of August 15, the Feast of the Assumption, to our Cluny Family, a feast that unites us around Mary our perpetual Mother General.

Pope Paul VI wrote succinctly: “Mary is held up as an example to the faithful for the way in which in her own particular life she fully and responsibly accepted the Word of God and did it ……. She is worthy of imitation because she was the first and most perfect of Christ’s disciples.” Mary is our role model of courage, simplicity, humility and doing God’s will.

The theme of our recent Chapter was “Missionary Disciples for a new world”. It is fitting that we turn to Mary the first disciple of the Lord, woman of faith and commitment, to accompany us on our way towards becoming credible disciples, witnesses of the gospel, full of hope.

Mary, by her life, showed us how to proclaim the greatness of the Lord and find joy in God our Saviour. The Lord worked marvels for her and she led others to recognize God’s holiness. She was the lowly handmaid who through her Assumption, was chosen to have a special place of honour with God, the Trinity. From her position of strength she will help us as we work with the lowly and the poor to find justice and peace on earth.

As we embrace our Missionary Priorities and take steps to truly bring them to life, we can count on Mary to act as our conduit to Jesus, her beloved Son. Let us continue confidently.

May we all forge ahead in our lives under Mary’s guidance.

Sr Clare Stanley
