Today is the birthday of our Blessed Virgin Mother Mary, mother of Jesus.
I pray to Mary and ask her for her help through her son Jesus. It is the quickest way to Jesus because Mary was probably one of the people Jesus was closest to on earth during his life.
Now that my own mother is in heavenly paradise, I look to the Blessed Virgin Mary as my mother and guide. I get a great deal of comfort in talking to her. Every day I ask her to pray for peace, truth, justice, and freedom. Every day I ask her for guidance and protection. I like to think she will pass the messages on to her son Jesus, to whom I pray as well.
A birthday celebration expresses the goodness of life. In every birthday, there is somehow included the goodness of our creation.
On this special day when we celebrate the birthday of Mary, let us put our trust in our Heavenly Mother and give her all of our love.
Happy Birthday, dear Blessed Mother!
