Happy Birthday!!!

Happy Birthday oh Mary most holy! Mother of us all ... Queen of heaven and earth. Our human capacity it too limited to fully appreciate your love and constant intercession for all your children; ...those who recognize you, those who love you, those who ignore you, those that despise you. Mary FULL OF GRACE, how else could you have ever withstood your own passion in following the Passion of your beloved Son? A mothers love like no other to her Son .. to her God and Creator! And what great bond of love at the Wedding at Cana did our dear Lord manifest His Greatness when after you said they have no wine, He answered "Woman, what is that to Me? My hour is not yet come." Yet, for love of you and that He heard you tell the waiters to do what ever HE tells you ... His Love for You fulfilled your request, turning water into wine as His first public miracle. 

How pitiful those that don't call on you to intercede for them to your Beloved Son and our Beloved Lord and Savior. The human bond between mother and son is very strong  ... a mother's love is precious, special and gives ALL. How much more so for you and Jesus? We cannot comprehend the great love and bond that goes beyond human understanding, but in Faith, we come to you most Pure and Immaculate Mother, to take our pleas and trials to our Merciful Lord. Please tuck them softly close to His most Sacred Heart; there He will consider with mercy and love what His dear Mother asks of Him. 

You have come to us so many times throughout the centuries .. always with the same message ... PRAY, PRAY, PRAY and do penance! We know that the rosary has stopped wars, I pray that more pick up their rosaries in today's world which need to pray the Scriptures now, more than ever. Help us oh Mother most holy to deepen our devotion to you who only seeks to lead us to Jesus always! Help us to beg for the grace to fully embrace the Divine Will of our glorious Triune God and stand strong in the TRUTH that IS Jesus regardless of public opinion.

Who could be better than you dear Mother asking Jesus on our behalf to help us, make us stronger in Faith, accept our trials in union with His Passion and above all, to help increase our human capacity to know Him better, love Him more and trust and serve Him always!
So Happy Birthday Immaculate Mother, ever pure ..... and I thank you for your great love for humanity, especially for those that ignore your constant merciful love that intercedes for all of us night and day before the Lord our God! 

All that I am .. all that I have;  to Jesus through Mary, now and throughout eternity! 

 Prayer to Our Lady of Sorrows
Oh my afflicted Mother! Queen of martyrs and of sorrows, thou didst so bitterly weep over thy Son, who died for my salvation; but what will thy tears avail me if I am lost? By the merit, then, of thy sorrows, obtain me true contrition for my sins, and a real amendment of life, together with constant and tender compassion for the sufferings of Jesus and thy dolours. And if Jesus and thou, being so innocent, have suffered so much for love of me, obtain that at least I, who am deserving of hell, may suffer something for your love. "Oh Lady," will I say with St. Bonaventure, "if I have offended thee, in justice wound my heart; if I have served thee, I now ask wounds for my reward. It is shameful to me to see my Lord Jesus wounded, and thee wounded with Him, and myself without a wound." In fine, Oh my Mother, by the grief thou didst experience in seeing thy Son bow down His head and expire on the cross in the midst of so many torments, I beseech thee to obtain me a good death. Ah, cease not, Oh advocate of sinners, to assist my afflicted soul in the midst of the combats in which it will have to engage on its great passage from time to eternity. And as it is probable that I may then have lost my speech, and strength to invoke thy name and that of Jesus, who are all my hope, I do so now; I invoke thy Son and thee to succor me in that last moment; and I say, Jesus and Mary, to you I commend my soul. Amen.
