Today is the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The more I read about Mary, the more I realize her special sanctity and the important role she assumed in the history of salvation. She is the greatest among all saints. Her sorrow at the death of Jesus exceeded what any of us could ever possibly experience. Because of her supreme humility, God exalted her to be Queen of Heaven. I am so blessed to have her as my ally, mother, intercessor and partner in doing God's will. Praised be to the glorious Holy Trinity.
