On this day


Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary“This morning I was considering in my meditation that the Church, centuries back, decided to celebrate most advocations of our Lady. And I was telling our Lady that I wanted, and want, to contemplate her in all the shrines and sanctuaries in the world. These things are things of love, and as we are souls of love, we maintain a constant conversation with Mary and Joseph, and then, with them, we start to speak to Jesus, and with all three of them, to God the Father and God the Holy Spirit. A life of faith, my children! Pray every day, ‘Adauge nobis fidem! Increase our faith!’” (Luke 17:5).
