Mary, the Mother of God

Mother of God
Before this Solemnity is over, I wanted to share with you what Brother John, a Marianist brother, shared with me:
Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God and Octave of Christmas

May we always profit from the prayers of the Virgin Mother Mary.
May her prayer, the gift of a mother's love, be our joy throughout this new year.

We proclaim the Virgin Mary to be the Mother of Christ and the Mother of the Church.

The birth of Christ is the source of life for the Christian people, and the birthday of the head is the birthday of the body.

--Pope St. Leo the Great
