Meet “MJ” Mystic Post’s intrepid blue penguin.
Pope Francis encourages Christians to “bring the Gospel to the periphery”
The blue penguin represents bringing the word of Christ and the messages of Our Lady to the farthest reaches on planet earth including desolate locations where penguins dwell.
Our flightless friend hopes to be a symbol of Christian evangelization with a special emphasis on Mary as the Mediatrix of All Graces.
The letters “MJ” are symbolic for Jesus and his mother Mary.
Saint John Paul the Great adopted a radical commitment to finding Jesus. “To Christ through Mary” pleaded Pope John Paul II to young Catholics throughout the world. His urgent plea ignited a new flame in the hearts of countless young people all over the world.
Each of us is called in our own way to be apostles of Christ. as Our Lady says “I am calling you, my apostles, to be a chalice of the true and pure love of my Son”
The Second Vatican Council (Lumen gentium ## 61-62), said:
… in suffering with Him as He died on the cross, she cooperated in the work of the Savior, in an altogether singular way, by obedience, faith, hope, and burning love, to restore supernatural life to souls. As a result she is our Mother in the order of grace.
This motherhood of Mary in the economy of grace lasts without interruption, from the consent which she gave in faith at the annunciation, and which she unhesitatingly bore with under the cross, even to the perpetual consummation of all the elect. For after being assumed into heaven, she has not put aside this saving function, but by her manifold intercession, she continues to win the gifts of eternal salvation for us. By her motherly love, she takes care of the brothers of her Son who are still in pilgrimage and in dangers and difficulties, until they be led through to the happy fatherland. For this reason, the Blessed Virgin is invoked in the Church under the titles of Advocate, Auxiliatrix, Adiutrix, and Mediatrix. This however it to be so understood that it takes nothing away, or adds nothing to the dignity and efficacy of Christ the one Mediator. For no creature can ever be put on the same level with the Incarnate Word and Redeemer….”
