Knowing Christ & His Message through Scripture, the Catechism, & the Catholic Church

Celebrating Mary’s Bday: Talking to her, asking for guidance…

Birth of Mary: September 8th

Let us proclaim the greatness of our Savior who chose to be born of the Virgin Mary. Confident that He will hear us, we ask:

Lord, may your mother pray for us.

Sun of justice, you showed your day was dawning in the immaculate Virgin Mary;
help us to walk in the daylight of your presence.
Lord, may your mother pray for us.
Eternal Word, in the living flesh of Mary you found a dwelling place on earth;
remain with us for ever in hearts free from sin.
Lord, may your mother pray for us.
Christ, our Saviour, you willed that your mother should be there when you died;
through her intercession may we rejoice to share your suffering.
Lord, may your mother pray for us.
Loving Saviour, while hanging on the cross, you gave your mother Mary to be the mother of John;
let us be known as her children by our way of living.
Lord, may your mother pray for us.
Today (9 months after we celebrate the Immaculate Conception) we celebrate the birth of Mary.  Let us take a few moments to talk to Mary. Let us ask her about her faith journey.  Let us ask for her guidance.  Let us thank her for her example & her help.
Lord God,
the day of our salvation dawned when the Blessed Virgin gave birth to your Son.
As we celebrate her own nativity,
grant us your grace and your peace.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.   Amen.
