O Mary, I do not stop to think about the anguish and sorrow that you endored. Jesus took the weight of the world's sins upon His shoulders as He carried His cross and then gave His life for those sins so that mankind might be saved. Mary, you must have grieved over loosing your Son but Mary, you must have also grieved over the reason why Jesus gave His life. I know that all grace from God flows through you because God, the Son, came into this life through you. Likewise, all of the pain endored by Jesus as He gave His life for our sins flowed through you as well. That is why when Jesus is heartbroken each time that I sin, your heart, Mary, is also broken. No one wishes to deliberately break his or her mother's heart. I ask that the next time that I choose to sin that I have the forsight to consider the fact that when I do, I break the heart of my mother in heaven. But I am human and like everyone else, I am a sinner and so, I must thank you Mary for being there to intercede for me and everyone else. Whenever I pray the "Hail Mary" or any other prayer to you, please know that there is gratitude in my heart and a "Thank you" at the end even if I do not say so out loud. Know that it is in my heart. Thank you, Mary. Amen.

The Descent of the Holy Spirit
Catechism of the Catholic Church
Paragraph 767 "When the work which the Father gave the Son to do on earth was accomplished, the Holy Spirit was sent on the day of Pentecost in order that he might continually sanctify the Church."174 Then "the Church was openly displayed to the crowds and the spread of the Gospel among the nations, through preaching, was begun."175 As the "convocation" of all men for salvation, the Church in her very nature is missionary, sent by Christ to all the nations to make disciples of them.176
The Holy Spirit came to Mary and the Apostles as tongues of fire.
