Happy Birthday Mother Mary!

Today, the Catholic Church celebrates the “Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.” And as the Mama’s boy that I am, I have a profound love for Mother Mary and St. Joseph. I ask daily for their prayers and intercession, which I believe have helped bring me to the deep and personal relationship that I have with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Today, I praise God and thank Him for choosing Mary to be the Mother of God and for St. Joseph to be her spouse and foster father of Jesus.

The Gospel reading for today from Matthew 1:18-23 is very familiar but worth reading again and again for the glory of God … Now this is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about. When his mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, but before they lived together, she was found with child through the Holy Spirit. Joseph her husband, since he was a righteous man, yet unwilling to expose her to shame, decided to divorce her quietly. Such was his intention when, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home. For it is through the Holy Spirit that this child has been conceived in her. She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: Behold, the virgin shall be with child and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel, which means “God is with us.”

Happy Birthday dear Mother Mary!

  1. By the way, are you aware that the 23rd is Augustus Caesar’s birthday? Most of the world knew and celebrated with feasts, orgies, and a holiday season back one night when the Heavenly Host opened and announce the birth of the world’s True Lord and Savior. Now days, almost know one knows and celebrates Caesar’s birth, but they sure do remember that peasant king’s!
