Solemnity Mary Mother of God
An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 1 of January, repeating indefinitely
On this Feast Day we remember and honor our Mary Mother of God. This title comes because Jesus is the son of Mary. Jesus is God. Therefore, Mary is the Mother of God. Mary with her “yes” to God brought our Jesus into the world so that we might have life, life to the fullest.
Jesus said on the cross, “Behold your Mother.” As the frenzy of the new year begins and we start to try and keep our resolutions, let us call on the aid of our Mother Mary to give us the strength to draw closer to her Son every day this year.
We petition Mary:
Mary, Queen of Peace, we entrust our lives to you. Shelter us from war, hatred, oppression. Teach us to live in peace. Inspire us to act justly, to revere all God has made. Root peace firmly in our hearts and in the world. Amen
