Fr. Donald Calloway’sfirst prayer to Mary: “Mary, I love you so much and I am so in love with Jesus. I am so grateful for what you have given me. You are the Mother of God. You know Jesus. He is God, and you are His mother. And I believe that of all people you know Him best. Please cover me with your maternal mantle, for I am not the most brilliant man and could be easily deceived into believing or even making up my own Jesus. I want to know the real Jesus, the one whom so many people have turned away from.”
