Each of us has a name that our parents have chosen. Perhaps a family tradition, for a personal desire, or to perpetuate the name of a grandparent or great-grandfather. Or maybe to give the name of some writer, author, artist and actor who our parents really liked. This is to clarify that if only the name, He says something about our origin.

The Name of The rose: Poster of the film 1986 with Sean Connery

There are devotions you need to discover and meditate, like that of the Holy Name of Mary, which is very important because I believe encompasses a set of beautiful teachings about our faith.

.

Let us dwell on the nature of the name. Each of us has a name that our parents have chosen. Perhaps a family tradition, for a personal desire, or to perpetuate the name of a grandparent or great-grandfather. Or maybe to give the name of some writer, author, artist and actor who our parents really liked. This is to clarify that if only the name, He says something about our origin.

.

Born The Lord of the Rings, the blond elf accompanying the Fellowship of the Ring It has a very unique name: Legolas. Tolkien devised the Elvish language specially for his epic saga. Indeed, Legolas, in Elvish means Green leaf and indicates, again, the archer's origins, original no coincidence Woodland Realm.

.

Let's now an example from the real world: if you hear a few friends call themselves very religious Efisio, most likely Sardinian origin, Sant'Efisio is a saint because Cagliari. This is to reiterate that the name can tell our identity origin, and this name the Lord binds a particular mission entrusted to each of us: our mission.

.

As part of religious life, For centuries, dressing gown of monastic or religious family, It has assumed a different name than to his baptismal name. In some cases the same secular priests, who have never had this tradition, they asked in some cases to their bishops to take another name. This request was made several times mostly by men become priests in adulthood, almost as if to mark, Also in the name, the brand of their radical lifestyle choice. Here then is the name, chosen and given by religious superiors, or selected and proposed by religious, or assumed by the secular priest at his request made to the bishop, is something closely related to vocational choice, the character and spirituality of the person.

.

The fact that a name characterizes a person is an element that involves our Mother in the primary mode, Mary. Indeed, while I am doing research on the words Most Holy Name of Mary, providentially I found a beautiful poem that the Italian writer Alessandro Manzoni composed of 1812 and 1815. The writer and poet, by writing the name of Mary, states:

.

In the brunette waking fears, / You noma the little boy; the, trembling,/ When swells roaring luck,/ It occurs boater.

.

The verses seem just turn to us all. The name of Mary takes the children and adolescents participating in the oratory and other activities and at the same time the boater. Interpreting freely we could say that sailing is all of us, cybernauts no longer children and adolescents; the sailor is every believer sailing vessel with Jesus: The Church. It relies on Mary when her life of faith, and even in the daily vicissitudes, coming of stormy moments, that precisely recall Manzoni roar of fortune.

.

I think back to three readings typically Marian that show us how great teachings are enclosed in Mary's name, our mother. The Book of Genesis, also said Protogospel, that serves as an introduction to the Gospel of Christ:

.

"I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; this offspring will crush your head and you shall bruise his heel " [GN 3,15].

.

The woman here will give the offspring who will crush the serpent, Maria will own, which it is present in typical form. Moving on from the Book of Genesis all'Epistolario Paolino, Instead we read in the Letter to the Galatians: "God sent forth His Son, born of woman". Here we show how Jesus is indeed the descendants prophesied by God, true God and true Man.

.

Introduciamoci now in the Marian Gospel text for excellence, The passage in Luke that tells the Annunciation. We imagine ourselves to be in the house of Mary, and listen to the words of the Archangel:

.

"In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent to a bride. The virgin's name was Mary " [cf. LC 1, 26 – 38].

.

The first lesson linked to the name of Mary It is related to the Marriage and at the same time virgin. Mary teaches this to everyone, through a virginity which should also be seen as purity and readiness to respond to God's call. As a pure field and virgin, Mary is for us an example of person who is prepared to say yes to God. Immediately after the archangel greets:

.

"" Rejoice, full of grace: the Lord is with you " […] "Do not fear, Mary, for you have found favor with God " '.

.

Mary is full of grace, Immaculate Conception, and the Archangel gives her why she came to her: her that although virgin betrothed, she will conceive a son by God: Jesus. Here's how Mary shows us the gift of a motherhood that generates - teaches Marian dogma - Jesus in his human body. It is thanks to Mary and to the Holy Spirit, Jesus became man like us, through the mystery of the Incarnation of the Word of God. And, like all people, facing a huge ad, Also little Maria reflects and meditates on which the Archangel says:

.

"But she was very upset and pondered what sort of greeting like this».

.

Maria has no doubt that the Lord wants to give something great: but the question is how will it happen. And that 'wondered', It should literally translate it as "reflected, he meditated ". In this the small handmaiden of Nazareth there is an example: we can also reflect on the message that God gives us each day. Meditate that message to make our life full of deep meaning. At last, after the reassurances of the Archangel, here is break out the yes of Marian Love:

.

"Behold the handmaid of the Lord: done to me according to your word ".

.

The Marian yes is that Jesus comes to the world. The Son of God is generated by the Eternal Father, and Maria. It is born for us. The mission of Mary now you can take: generate Jesus for us.

.

In each of our states of life also we have this particular mission: generate Jesus in people, namely to ensure that we become witnesses that Jesus came into our lives, changing them radically. Thus, those who observe us from afar, You will hear our testimony: and the Holy Spirit will act in him and spread the seeds of the Word of eternal life.

.

Emphasizing the Marian name, implies the exaltation of the name of Mary, Mother of God, what model of all believers. So we thank God, because today all our names are written in the book of eternal life given to us by Jesus. Our names are written in the fiery heart of our heavenly mother, button of love and tenderness, He donates them to God.

.

May the Lord grant us more strength and courage to live faithfully the Christian life, following the example of our Holy Mother.
