Nativity of Mary

Rejoicing today on the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This is the day we remember Mary's birth.

She is a perfect role model for those of us interested in becoming women of peace in our hearts and in this world. She was a disciple--a person who exquisitely listened to God and to her son, Jesus.

What other qualities can we glean from her life?
  • She was open to the will of God
  • She praised Him for what He called her to do and be
  • She found joy for the mission

Let us say with the psalmist today, "With delight I rejoice in the Lord!" Ps  13 : 6
