Happy Birthday Mary!

Today we celebrated the feast of the nativity of Mary with an outdoor Mass in the grotto at our church. The grotto is of Our Lady of Lourdes and St. Bernadette.
I am thankful to our Blessed Mother, for saying yes to God, and teaching us to do the same. For interceding for us. For hearing my prayers, and taking them to her Son. For always pointing us to her Son. For her many appearances throughout history, like this one to St. Bernadette, who is the patron saint of my daughter. For giving us an example of perfection in the virtues. For giving us Jesus, and clothing Him in her flesh, so that He could do the work of Salvation.
Ave, Maria!
