Mary treasured all these things in her heart

Remembrance.  Pondering in depth.  Recounting for oneself the salient moments where Holy Mystery has visited us, blessing or perhaps wounding us to our core.  Over and over Luke’s Gospel points to this powerful and necessary task.  Mary’s task and our task.  A task that goes back to our roots in Judaism.  A task which resulted in the Torah, the Psalms, the writings of the Prophets, the Wisdom literature.  God’s chosen people, reminded again and again to recall, to celebrate, to memorialize, to record in writing, to repeat on our lips night and day, to keep alive within our hearts, the saving acts of God, the words, the teachings, the sacred events.

Jesus tells us (in both Matthew and Luke):

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

What do we treasure?  Where is our heart? By this we judge ourselves.

Christ, the Wisdom of God, the Just Judge
