Mother of God, Bless Us with Peace in 2019 – Jan 01 – Homily – Fr Alan

Views 670


In the homily for the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God (Jan 01), Fr. Alan explains some of the Catholic belief about the divine maternity: the Son of God regards Mary as His Mother. She is the “full of grace,” chosen from before the time began, to be the one through whom God would unite Himself to humanity. Just as her humble fidelity recommended her to God in the fullness of time, to choose her as His Mother, so her humble fidelity is the condition by which Peace was once and will again be granted to us.

Ave Maria!
