Your duty is to sanctify yourself. Yes, even you. Who thinks that this task is only for priests and religious? To everyone, without exception, our Lord said: Be ye perfect, as my heavenly Father is perfect. St. Josemaria

Happy Birthday..Mama!

Its a beautiful day.. on the Nativity of Our Blessed Mother!.. We have made the card...(that in itself was a big task!), we are on our way to Mass.. what is better to celebrate anyone birthday with a Most Beautiful gift.. the Mass..

We made the dinner, a special dinner at our House.. homemade sauce with pasta and a delicious Flan as our Cake!

I order Mary, Mother of Jesus by Tomie this book a few weeks ago for today and this morning I was worried.. but guess what.. it came to day and its beautiful....

We are going to take the whole week on Our Blessed Mother... specially since on Saturday is the Sweet Name of Mary....

Canticle of Mary
My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
my spirit rejoices in God my Savior
for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.

From this day all generations will call me blessed:
the Almighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his Name.

He has mercy on those who fear him
in every generation.

He has shown the strength of his arm,
he has scattered the proud in their conceit.

He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
and has lifted up the lowly.

He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away empty.

He has come to the help of his servant Israel
for he remembered his promise of mercy,
the promise he made to our fathers,
to Abraham and his children for ever.
