Solemnity of Mary
the Mother of God
There are no public Masses at the Mission
Mary is the Mother of God
and Our Mother.
We are sons and daughters of Her Heart.
And Her Heart is the furnace of Faith:
a holy abiding place where we, Her children,
can find refuge from the attacks of the Enemy.
Her Heart is immune to the attacks of the Enemy.
Her Heart is a special refuge---
a high tower to safekeep our Faith.
This is why our consecration to Her is so important,
So essential, so powerful.
Her Heart is the refuge of Faith in these times when
Faith is under such terrible attack.
Faith is what gives life to all things.
In the same way that the breath of life animates the body,
making it useful, living,
capable of movement, of expression, of love;
living Faith animates your soul,
making it useful, beautiful, alive,
capable of receiving the Light of Christ.
Mary is the Mother of God and Our Mother.
Turn to Her in all things.
Her Heart is our refuge and home.
The Mission will be closed Friday, New Year's Day.
