You may not know it, but today is the feast of the Nativity of Mary. Yep, it’s her birthday! Happy birthday to our Mother in Heaven. Assuming Christ was born in 4 BC, and Mary was 14 years old at the time, that makes her…..2023 years old. That’s a lot of candles on the cake!
Fr. Michael Tauro, a local pastor, sent me a link with some photos of this celebration in Mangalore, India. Quite beautiful, don’t you think? I love how our faith is celebrated throughout the world!
