Prodigal Mother

Mary is worthy of being called a Prodigal Mother and everything that such a name can allude to.

During the annuciation of the Angel Gabriel, Mary's fiat was the ultimate sign of her prodigality of heart. Like any young lady in her time, Mary can't be blind to the ramifications of the message of the angel to her. She can't be blind to the fact that she could be stoned to death as an adulterer. But Mary, lavishly heeded to the call even at the face of a steep cost.

When Mary was there at the foot of the cross, lying in wait for the body of her son, imagine the confusion, grief, anguish and derangement she entered into. Mary is the epitome of remaining a faithful servant at the cost of one's everything in life-her only cherished son. Mary had that prodigal faith to endure being the Mother of the savior of human race.
