Holy Day Of Obligation
This Thursday was the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven, a Holy Day of Obligation on the Catholic calendar.
Mary, or Mother, your total giving of yourself reminds us that we hold in trust from God our Father all our accomplishments and talents and gifts – trusted as we are to offer them in his service and bring happiness and well-being to our brothers and sisters.
Your ‘Yes’ to God’s invitation to be the mother of God reminds us that prayer is not just words but is from the heart.
We ask you to pray to Jesus for us that the Holy Spirit may fully live in us too, so that we may pray in the way that each of us finds best.
So may we be prepared to join you in saying ‘Yes’ to God our Father, that Jesus may be born anew in our hearts.
