Thought of the Day September 8, 2016

What do we learn from the celebration of the Blessed Virgin Mary's birth? Her significance is not in herself, but in you, Lord Jesus, her Son. Just as her immaculate conception was in preparation for your conception years later, so her birth, in insignificance and humble surroundings to a poor family, was to reflect your future birth to a then unknown person in a poor village in lowly surroundings. Mary's greatness begins in and for you, Lord Jesus, while she saw herself only as the handmaid of God. A humble, human birth climaxes in the glorious birth into eternal life as Queen of heaven and earth at your right hand. Her birth is only one of the many special moments which we celebrate in the life of your holy Mother. Thank you, Jesus!
