BLESSED VIRGIN MARY

Today, the first Sat. of the Month, we honor the Blessed Virgin Mary.  Poem from Magnificat: 

Ye who own the faith of Jesus,

Sing the wonders that were done

When the love of God the Father

O’re our sin the vict’ry won,

When he made the Virgin Mary

Mother of his only Son.

Blessed were the chosen people

Out of whom the Lord did come,

Blessed was the land of promise

Fashioned for his earthly home;

But more blessed far the mother

She who bore him in her womb.

Wherefore let all faithful people

Tell  the honor of her name,

Let the Church in her foreshadowed

Part in her thanksgiving claim;

What Christ’s mother sang in gladness

Let Christ’s people sing the same.
