Saturday is Mary's Day

I am the handmaid of the Lord. This is the title Mary gives herself. All other titles are given her by others but this is the one she claims. And how revealing it is, how simple and truthful, how powerful! It describes what Mary wishes us to know about her because it perfectly describes what she knows about herself. All the rest, her great gifts and prerogatives, her high calling and destiny, all these are for Mary nothing more than the 'marvels the Almighty works for me'.

  1. Our Blessed Mother is the perfect example of obedience. It is what we should all aspire to in our lives.

    Too many Catholics do not understand obedience and authority, which wreaks havoc in their lives.

    If I don't "hear" from you before Christmas, may I take this opportunity to say thank you for your wonderful posts and God Bless.

    I wanted to send you the blogger blessing going around but I really figured you were too busy to deal with it.
