Prayer of the Day
Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin MarySeptember 8th, 2016
Today Matthew gives the ancestry of Jesus so he names all his ancestors from Abraham onwards till he comes to the virgin birth. Here also we are introduced to Joseph. The angel of the Lord appears to him and in the circumstances puts his mind at ease. God has planned the birth of Jesus and makes sure it is going to plan. Joseph has been told his mission in life as also that of Mary’s child.
Today the Church honours your birthday and the beginning of the life of Jesus. Keep us close to Jesus and close to you and Joseph. Mary and Joseph teach us how to love Jesus and give him our all. Help us to always to be true to Jesus and honour him in the children around us. Let us see his face in all the little ones and may each little one be allowed to live life to the full. Amen
