Happy Birthday Mama Mary!

According to the history that the parents of Mary, Joachim and Anna were beyond the years of child bearing but they prayed and fasted that God grant their desire of having a child. And God grant their prayers and Mary was born. The birth of Mary was also miraculous. She was conceived without sin as a special grace because God had selected her to become the mother of His Son. As the mother of Jesus Christ, Mary has a central role in the life of the Roman Catholic Church. The Feast of the Birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary has been celebrated in the Church at least since the 8th Century. As Christians we are so thankful to Mama Mary for accepting the invitation from God to become the Mother of Jesus Christ, the Redeemer of the World. Happy Birthday Mama Mary
