The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary

To hear the beautiful music on the video, please turn off my Playlist player in the column on the left by clicking on the double vertical lines.

V. Today is the Nativity of the holy Virgin Mary.

R. Whose glorious life is the ornament of all the Churches.

Antiphon at the Magnificat:
Thy Nativity, O Virgin Mother of God, was the herald of joy to the whole world: since from thee arose the Sun of Justice, Christ our God, who, destroying the curse, bestowed the blessing, and, confounding death, brought us the gift of life everlasting.

Bestow upon Thy servants, we beseech Thee, O Lord, the gift of Thy heavenly grace: that as the childbearing of the Blessed Virgin was the beginning of our salvation, so the solemn feast of her Nativity may bring us an increase of peace. Amen

Happy Birthday, dear Mary, our Mother.

Thinking of you this evening. Are you going into the hospital tomorrow? Prayers here ongoing until we hear from your hubby that everything is finished :)

Much love and cyber hugs :)

Thank you, Jennifer! Yes, I'll be going into the hospital tomorrow morning. I'll post an update about the family conference and all later this evening. Thank you for your prayers; I need them more than ever right now. Ron has agreed to post updates for me while I'm out of pocket.

I'm so glad that Ron is going to keep us updated :) Know that we are keeping you in our prayers, flooding heaven as it were :)
