Today is the birthday of our dear Mother, the Ever Blessed and Immaculate, Mary.
Please pray for me and mu wife too as we celebrate our wedding anniversary. I remember after our wedding reception, my wife and I went to Malate Church to pray before Our Lady of Remedies, where we consecrated our married life to Her and Her Son.
Include us in our prayer and say an Ave and Memorare for me, my wife and my family.
Thank you very much and God bless you!
PRAYER ON THE BIRTH OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN
Come, all you faithful, let us hasten to the Virgin: for long before her conception in the womb, the one who was to be born of the stem of Jesse was destined to be the Mother of God. The one who is the treasury of virginity, the flowering Rod of Aaron, the object of the prophecies, the child of Joachim and Anne, is born today and the world is renewed in her. Through her birth, she floods the church with her splendor. O holy Temple, Vessel of the Godhead, Model of virgins and Strength of kings: in you the wondrous union of the two natures of Christ was realized. We worship Him and glorify your most pure birth, and we magnify you.
