Mother Mary as an Infertility Healer
Mother Mary received a gift and an important role as the Mother of the Son of God. How can she help us?
Mary is the first choice saint of many Christian women when praying to overcome infertility. Mother Mary was the mother of Jesus, who was born after the Angel Gabriel came to her announcing, “You will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus” (Luke 1:31). The Angel told Mary that God chose her for all women to carry the Son of God and be his mother.
Praying to Mary
Our Lady of Perpetual Help is one of Mother Mary’s known titles; a name which goes all the way back to the 13th century. Her Motherhood is an example of God’s work; therefore, she also has an open heart with a listening spirit. It is no wonder that we find her as our lighthouse in troubled times. Many infertile women and couples turn to her and practice prayer to the Mother Mary. Parents who encounter difficulties and wish for a child are waiting for a miracle. Therefore, the miracle of Jesus who was born to Mother Mary contributed to her popularity as a focus for prayer.
