The Octave Day of Christmas, Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God. How could God have a mother? Mary is the first Receiver of the gift of our Savior. Mary is Jesus’ mother and Jesus is God. Jesus teaches Mary how to be a mother. Then He shares his mother with every child of God — you and me. Mary will help you live this year as a Child of God.

Point to Ponder: “My Mother is the Queen of Heaven” — how does that change my view of myself?
Point to Discuss: Talk to a friend about your coming year and what you would like to do differently. Decide on one thing to ask Mary for and pray the Hail Mary together.
