In virtue of the sweet Virgin’s sinless life of exemplary faith, hope and charity, she is rightly honored as the preeminent model of the perfect Christian.
Mother of God
Mary is a beacon of peace in troubled times because, through her intercession, she directs us into a deeper relationship with her son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Praying the Rosary is a means of doing just that.
By entering into the Christian school of prayer directed by Mary and promoted by the gift of the Rosary, every Christian is enabled to better know Jesus Christ, the only Son of the sweet Virgin Mother of God.
Today we celebrate in the Church the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The life of the Church throughout history bears the mark of devotion to Theotokos, the Mother of God, whose fiat—her “yes” to the salvific plan of God the Father—brought the Savior and Redeemer of humankind into the world.
Regina Cleri, Queen of the Clergy, pray for us. After Mass, the seminarians, deacons, priests and lay faithful all together raise their supplication to you, Queen of Heaven.
