Happy Birthday, Mary!

“Your birth, O Virgin Mother of God, proclaims joy to the whole world, for from you arose the glorious Son of Justice, Christ our God; he freed us from the age-old curse and filled us with holiness; he destroyed death and gave us eternal life.”

It would be a great day to offer just one minute (really, just 60 seconds) to her wouldn’t it? Click here – pause - pray – and then send this post to someone who might also like to wish Mary a “happy birthday.”

“Father of mercy, give your people help and strength from heaven. The birth of the Virgin Mary’s Son was the dawn of our salvation. May this celebration of her birthday bring us closer to lasting peace. Grand this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.”
