Prayer of the Day
Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin MarySeptember 8th, 2014
‘’You Bethlehem, Ephrathah, the least of the clans of Judah, out of you will be born for me the one who is to rule Israel: his origin goes back to the distant past, to the days of old. The Lord is therefore going to abandon them till the time when she who is to give birth gives birth. Then the remnant of his brothers will come back to the sons of Israel. He will stand and feed his flock with the power of the lord with the majesty of the name of his God. They will live secure, for from then on he will extend his power to the ends of the land. He himself will be peace, ‘’ (Micah 5 : 1-4)
We celebrate the Nativity of Mary who brought the dawn of hope into the world. She is God’s special chosen, the Ark of the Covenant, God’s temple, who received the one Mediator Jesus.
