January 1st, 2017

“And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.” Luke 1 : 38

At the message of the angel,  the Virgin Mary received the Word of God in her heart and in her body,  and gave Life to the world. Mary is acknowledged and honoured as being truly the Mother of God and Mother of the Redeemer.
