SOLEMNITY OF MARY
FOCUS: Let us honor and be thankful for Mary, the holy mother of God.
All of God’s promises are fulfilled in Jesus. God became man to bring us salvation and eternal life. God used a woman, Mary, to make this come about, and today we honor her, the holy mother of God. We acknowledge the role she played in God’s wonderful plan and thank her for her willingness to embrace the divine will for our salvation.
