Feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary
Today we celebrate the most holy name of Mary. She is our heavenly mother and many of us have her name. Even today there are many children named after Our Lady and I am sure she is happy to see that we honor her this way, but the most important way is to honor her is to imitate her virtues. Mary was simple, humble, attentive to the Lord and to others. She was open to whatever God asked of her. She sees what is lacking to each of us and reminds her Son, as she did at Cana,: "They have no..(whatever she sees we are in need of).." and then she tells us to "do whatsoever Jesus tells you."
Let us spend time with our heavenly Mother today and thank her for her love and attention as she is constantly helping us so that we may become more like her Divine Son.
