Mary, Mother of God

The Solemnity of Mary, the Mother of God

I begin this ministry in celebration of Mary, the Mother of God. There is no Saint greater than our Blessed Mother, who was literally filled with grace. What must it have been like to raise the child of God Himself? It would be one thing to learn the true nature of her divine Son slowly, as Jesus grew and matured, so that she would have time to adjust to this awesome responsibility. But no, it was announced to her by the Archangel Gabriel himself, before she even assented to conceive by the Holy Spirit!
Feast Day: January 1
The early Christians called her Theotokos, meaning “God Bearer”. One of the earliest prayers to our Blessed Mother, was found on a piece of papyrus dated back to around 250 AD.
O Mary, Mother of God, pray for us!
