Happy Solemnity of Mary, the Holy Mother of God!

“The Blessed Virgin Mary is not just a surrogate mother. She co-operated with God in the Incarnation and is therefore rightly called the Mother of God.”

~Fr. Dwight Longenecker

“O God, who through the fruitful virginity of Blessed Virgin Mary bestowed on the human race the grace of eternal salvation, grant, we pray, that we may experience the intercession of her, through whom we were found wothry to receive the author of life, our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son. Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. Amen”
