One Identity with Mary, Our Mother

Oh Blessed Virgin Mary help us o follow you

For Catholics all over the world, the 8th day of September is a very special day as we remember the birthday of a very important woman in our lives - - The Blessed Virgin Mary - - she who quietly yet faithfully walks with us in our faith journey, as the Mother of God and the Mother of all humankind.

Hearters also celebrated this day in a very special way. The entire educative community gathered at the back grounds early that morning for the Holy Eucharist. During his homily, the priest was very interactive with the pupils and students, yet the reflective questions he posed were also thought -provoking… “Are we truly sons and daughters of Mary in the way we live and treat one another?   If we claim to be her children, because we call her Mama Mary, do we really share in her identity? How can we become more and more like her?” His sharing centered on two of Mother Mary’s virtues that he encouraged everyone to imitate - - - the virtues of obedience and purity. Mary’s birthday celebration was a shower of bouquets and gifts for her. May we also remember to offer our spiritual bouquets of love and sacrifice as we strive to obey God and be pure and holy in His eyes day by day. I am sure this would please our Mother even more. “Happy Birthday Mama Mary!”
