Happy Birthday, Mary!

Today we celebrate Mary's birthday! Today I am so grateful for having such a loving mother in Heaven! What an example of holiness she is to all of us. Among many things she models for us purity, obedience, and openness to God's will. She is the perfect example of holy motherhood and our constant intercessor!

I encourage everyone to celebrate our Mother in Heaven's birthday today in some way. Our family will be throwing Mary a party tonight. In her honor we will have a birthday cake and blueberry smoothies. We have also been singing lots of Marian hymns around the house today!

Here is a list of some ideas that you might be able to use:
  • Make a cake
  • Pray a rosary or decade of a rosary
  • Place flowers around a statue of Mary
  • Light a candle at church
  • Sing Marian hymns
