Feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God
"Dear children! I, your Mother, love you and wish to urge you to prayer. I am tireless, dear children, and I am calling you even then, when you are far away from my heart. I am a Mother, and even though I feel pain for each one who goes astray, I forgive easily and am happy for every child who returns to me. Thank you for having responded to my call."(November 14, 1985)
This beautiful feast gives us a chance to thank the Father for giving us such a beautiful Mother! We can also thank Jesus for sharing her with us! And of course, we must thank the Holy Spirit for making it all possible! What a beautiful God we have!!!
Truly, it is our greatest joy to live every day with our Mother, Mary! She is tireless because her love is endless. As her children, we can rely on her love in all situations. Our hearts can rest in the knowledge that she is always with us, praying for us, loving us, and compassionating with us.
Thanks be to God for giving us such a Mother!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
PS. This is New Year's Day, and many of us have the tradition to pick a saint for the New Year to accompany us on our journey. We have posted a list of saints on our website,http://www.marytv.tv/MaryTV/saints-list. If you click on the PDF link you can print it out and cut up and put into a container. The family then can pray and draw a saint for the year from the container. It is wonderful to have such a companion!
Have a wonderful New Year!! Blessings and love to all!
