Let us celebrate with joy the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, for from her arose the sun of justice, Christ our God!

Typically Church to celebrates a saint’s death day instead of their birthday. The birthday of the Blessed Virgin Mary is an exquisite exception, however, since “her soul was the space from which God was able to gain access into humanity” (Pope Benedict XVI).

O, Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee!

  1. Yes, I have met Bishop Finn and I am good friends with a few priests in his diocese. They and everyone in the KC diocese are all in my prayers at this time.
