"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.

The Holy Mother of God

In the bush seen by Moses, as burning, yet unconsumed, we recognize the glorious preservation of your virginity: O Mother of God, intercede for us.

I love today's feast more than words can express.  Happy New Year to all readers, friends and enemies alike.

May God, who through the childbearing of the Blessed Virgin Mary willed in his great kindness to redeem the human race, be pleased to enrich you with his blessing.  Amen.


  1. "The Blessed Virgin is the Queen of Heaven and earth, quite true, but she is more Mother than Queen."

    - St. Therese of Lisieux

  2. And she never forgets or abandons her little ones.
