Today, January 1, we celebrate Mary as Mother of God. This title is monumental. It elevates a simple girl from Nazareth to the most highly revered woman in all creation. And it all started with a simple yes! But it didn’t end there. Being free from sin doesn’t mean being free from temptation. Mary had countless opportunities to say yes or no to God throughout her life. She is an example for us on the power of graced perseverance!
Whatever your resolutions or decisions in the coming year, ask for Mary’s intercession to say yes!
From all us us at St. Benilde Church, may God grant you a happy and holy New Year!
