The Church celebrates the birthday of Our Lady on this day. I have always thought the we should remember her birthday by a promise to do or refrain from doing something as the gift that will please her most. This year, I have several things to offer Mary and to beg her help in being faithful to what I am promising to give her as a gift.
Actually, as I wrote this paragraph, I seemed to feel that Mary really wants me to deepen the calls of our General Chapter and it would be a gift pleasing to her if I really try to create silence, that interior silence that is so necessary for prayer.
What will you give Our Lady today?
