Numb. 6:22-7; Gal. 4:4-7; Lk. 2:16-21
Today, as the world celebrate the beginning of a new year, the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Mother of God. It is the oldest of all Marian feasts in our liturgy. It is also a feast appropriate to those of us concerned with new beginnings, with new resolutions, and renewed hopes.
