Complete Sacrifice - Complete Assurance

While Jesus was still talking to the crowd, his mother and brothers stood outside, wanting to speak to him. Someone told him, “Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to speak to you.”
He replied to him, “Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?”Pointing to his disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers. For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”

Matthew 12:46-50

The above-mentioned fragment is not, as some may think, the best proof that Mary is no-one special either to Jesus or to us. On the contrary, this excerpt fits perfectly to the one wherein Jesus says “Behold, your mother(...) behold, your son.”

God cannot contradict himself, and thus the two pieces of the Holy Gospel, being complementary to each other, only affirm to the fact that Mary is not for Jesus who gave us everything he had – His Mother included.

But why he has done this? First of all, as I think, to make His sacrifice complete; secondly, to provide the promised Holy Ghost, our Paraclete and Inspirer with the concrete voice.

Today each and every rosary enthusiast may listen to her words - “do whatever He tells you, just do His Will” - knowing that the ones are inspired by the Holy Spirit that dwells in her.
