On January 1, the Catholic Church celebrates the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God – a holy day that is easily forgotten amid the hoopla over the New Year. Here’s why Mary’s solemnity is so important and a few ideas for how to celebrate it. My latest at National Catholic Register:
Petition our Lady of the Rosary for victory in your life. Perhaps you're battling family discord. Perhaps it's unemployment or financial distress. Perhaps it's confusion over vocation or weighty decisions. Whatever you're battling right now, give it to the Blessed Virgin Mary and ask her with all your heart to be victorious.
