Today, the Catholic Church celebrates the solemnity of the Birthday of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the holy Mother of Jesus our Lord. As a Catholic, I have fondness devotion to Mama Mary. In as much as I loved how my mother cared for me, so thus the Blessed Mother cares for each and every Christian.
For all the blessings I received through her intercession, thank you and please continue pray for us sinners now until the expiation of our earthly life.
Hail Mary full of grace the Lord is with you, Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
"Beginning with Mary's unique cooperation with the working of the Holy Spirit, the Churches developed their prayer to the holy Mother of God, centering it on the Person of Christ manifested in His mysteries. In countless hymns and antiphons expressing this prayer, two movements usually alternate with one another: the first "magnifies" the Lord for the "great things" He did for His lowly servant and through her for all human beings. The second entrusts the supplications and praises of the children of God to the Mother of Jesus, because she now knows the humanity which, in her, the Son of God espoused."
