Hail [Mary], full of grace, the Lord is with you.  – Lk 1:28

Reflection.  Today is Mary’s birthday, mine too.  Jesus honors His Mother on this day.  We honor her too because she said yes to God, and became the Mother of Jesus and our mother.

Prayer.  Dear Jesus, today we celebrate the feast of the Birth of Your Mother Mary.  Help me to imitate her so that my soul may glorify the Lord and my spirit may rejoice in God my Savior.
