My Dear Friends in Christ,
Today we celebrate the Solemnity of Mary, the Holy Mother of God. This feast is a celebration of Mary’s motherhood of Jesus, our Lord. The motherhood of Mary is an example of what we can expect when we seek God’s Will and open our hearts to the possibilities God has for us. Mary’s “yes” to God brought salvation into the world. Our own yes to God in our lives can continue to build up the Kingdom of God here on earth.
May this celebration of Mary’s motherhood remind us of all the good things our Lord has for us and may the Lord bring you peace and many joyful blessings today and throughout the New Year.
Yours in Christ,
Monsignor Frank McNamee
