|Mary's Divine motherhood|
Happy New Year 2013!
Today is the first day of the year, and the Catholic church celebrates the solemnity of Mary, Mother of God.
And she is our mother also.
We celebrate Christmas, the birth of Jesus. After Christmas, it's time for us to honour his mother, Mary.
Mary became the Mother of God and our mother when to the Angel's salutation she pronounced her meek assent, "Here am I, the servant of the Lord, let it be done with me according to your word." （Luke 1：38）
She is our model of FAITH.
Her faith has made her worthy of our devotion to her as mother of mankind.
Only faith can guarantee the blessings that we hope for, or prove the existence of the realizes that at present remain unseen .....(Hebrews 11)
On the beginning of our Year of Faith, I offer everything, including my family, friends and relatives,to the hands of Mary our mother, to pray for us to our God for blessings and protection, for a happy, peaceful and good health in year 2013.
Today also being The World day of Peace declared by Catholic church since 1967, I also pray for God's mercy and compassion, took pity on those refugees of wars, lessen their sufferings, and bring peace to the world. Amen.
