Happy New Year! Happy Feasting!

Today, as Catholic Christians, we celebrate Mary as the Holy Mother of God, along with the world day of peace.

To reflect on this great feast you may want to refer to this article here, by a great friend of mine! I have used this for my reflection for our service. Hopefully there is no copyright on it:) Here are the scriptures used for the reflection:

Numbers 6.22-27holding-god-holy-mother

Psalm 67

Galations 4.4-7

Luke 2.16-21

 

In the words of Pope emeritus Benedict XVI, “Let us ask Mary, the Mother of God, to help us to welcome her Son and, in Him, true peace. Let us ask her to sharpen our perception so that we may recognize in the face of every human person, the face of Christ, the heart of peace.”

Blessings to all of you, for a happy and peace filled new year!
