The Woman whom God loved Best

When Mary closed her eyes for the last time, she envisioned Jesus suffering on the Cross. He was in deep agony yet his eyes were full of loving concern. “Woman,” she heard, “here is your son. Son, here is your Mother.” Ever since that day, John took care of her into his home.
When Jesus died on the cross, something in her also died. When this much-loved Son ascended back to heaven, he brought with him her heart. From then on, she lost all appetite for earth. She felt a deep emptiness; a great homesickness. She longed to be with Jesus – in heaven!
And as Mary felt her soul separate from her body, she also felt the ecstasy of excitement. She would now join the love of her life. This extraordinary lady – most pure, most humble, most holy and most self-sacrificing – was, in fact, human nature’s solitary boast. She was God’s unique creation.
It was but natural that God would love her best. Pope Pius XII declared in his Apostolic Constitution Munificentissimus Deus on November 1, 1950 “having completed the course of her earthly life, Mary was assumed body and soul into heavenly glory.” But this is just a far cry of what God has in store for her as the “great sign” in the sky. In her assumption Mary has become the “woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.” And for all eternity, she will always appear ever more beautiful in the eyes of God.
If Jesus were to have a grand banquet in Mary’s honor, I would imagine He would sing and dedicate this touching song of Joshua Kadison for her Mother:
Beautiful in my Eyes
You’re my peace of mind. In this crazy world.
You’re everything I’ve tried to find,
Your love is a pearl. You’re my Mona Lisa,
You’re my rainbow skies.
And my only prayer is that you realize
You’ll always be beautiful in my eyes.

The world will turn,
And the seasons will change,
And all the lesson we will learn
Will be beautiful and strange.
We’ll have our fill of tears,
Our share of sighs.
And my only prayer is that you realize
You’ll always be beautiful in my eyes.

Chorus:
You will always be beautiful in my eyes.
And the passing years will show
That you will always grow
Ever more beautiful in my eyes.

When there are lines upon my face
From a lifetime of smiles,
When the time comes to embrace
For one long last while,
We can laugh about how time really flies.
We won’t say goodbye ’cause true love never dies.
You’ll always be beautiful in my eyes.
