"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Mother of God

October 11 was once observed as the feast of the Divine Maternity of Mary, but in the reformed calendar the feast is now commemorated on January 1.
Between the Orthodox and the Latin rite, I think there is some sort of feast day for Our Lady every day.

    Terry, there is a special Marian feast for every day of the year!


    Admittedly, they're not universal feasts, but isn't it nice to see that every day of the year means something Marian to one of Mary's children in the world?

  4. Beautiful picture!
