Mary, Mother of God
“Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb!” —Luke 1:42
This greeting of Elizabeth to Mary in Luke tells us that Mary was blessed by God above all women, in the fact that she alone was honored to bring Christ into the world. Mary is the Mother of God, and the mother of all of us. Jesus gave her to us on the Cross, and we must remember, for the entire duration of the year, to always beseech her goodness and grace.
Reflection: Hail, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now, and at the hour of our death. Amen.
