Maria, Ina ng Banal na Puso ni Hesus

She is a caddie in one of the golf courses in Manila. She carries the heavy bag of the golfer and walks long miles every day through all the 18 holes. She has to make sure where the ball lands every thime tat she may not be reprimanded by her player. Rain or shine she has to stand by her player, a slave in the fairway.

The congregation that commissioned this painting chose her as the model for Mary because of her Filipina features and tanned skin, but I personally opted for her because she symbolizes Mary’s obidience. “May it be done to me according to Your word.” It is also Mary’s invitation for me thread not the mountainous path of Nazareth nor the undulating fairway, but the journey of constraint ‘yeses’ as I submit to the Father’s will.
