You can never love her more than he did
May is traditionally the month of Mother Mary. As the mother of our Lord Jesus, she spent 30 years living with and loving him daily, that’s a considerably long quality time. They must have been very close.
I can imagine the kind of conversations they would have had. She was there when he performed his first miracle because she asked him to. Then after three short years of public ministry (being a typical Jewish mother she would have been a part of it too), she witnessed his horrendously agonising suffering and death. She was also there at the Resurrection and Pentecost.
So basically Mary was there with Jesus his whole life, death and beyond. If she were alive today, I would be pestering her with questions about her Son. I would also be intrigued by her. Above all I would be sure to thank her for continuing to mother us all into heaven.
