Imitation of Mary by Thomas A Kempis (318/22)
Imitation of Mary by Thomas A Kempis.

Anyone who has read The Imitation of Christ by Thomas A. Kempis may be left wondering if this Catholic brother had any devotion to Mary. The Imitation of Mary replies with a resounding "Yes!" Here, Thomas shows his deep insight into the prerogatives, graces, and glory of Mary.

Writing about the "Grandeurs and Glories of Mary", Thomas exclaims, "O Mary, greater than the heavens, you have the world under your feet and you are seated close to God, on the throne of honor which Jesus gave you." Here, Thomas shows his deep insight into scriptures, for Mary as "Mother of the Lord" is the new Queen-Mother and just as Solomon who points towards Christ, "stood up to meet her [his mother] and paid her homage. Then he sat down upon his throne, and a throne was provided for the king's mother, who sat at his right." (2 Kings, 2:19) so does Jesus seat his mother at his right hand side.

Elsewhere, Thomas writes saying that "by testimony of the Holy Scripture Mary was from all time, and will be always, the holiest virgin among all virgins, the most beautiful woman among all women, the sweetest mother among all mothers." The Imitation of Mary is a wonderful introduction to true devotion to Mary. Read it prayerfully, read it slowly and above all read it meditatively to enter into the Mystery of Christ and his love for his mother. Thomas is, once more, a sure guide leading you along a sound and faithful path to Mary and with Mary to Jesus.
