Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God

Today, January 1, the octave day of Christmas, the Church celebrates the Solemnity of Mary, the Mother of God.

The divine and virginal motherhood of the Blessed Virgin Mary is a singular salvific event: for Our Lady it was the foretaste and cause of her extraordinary glory; for us it is a source of grace and salvation because "through her we have received the Author of life" *

Please find the time to join in the celebration of the Holy Mass.

Happy Holidays Ananians!
