That's right, we're throwing a Birthday Party for the Blessed Virgin!
Saturday, Sept. 8th, is the Feast of the Birthday of the Blessed Virgin Mary. So, after mass, why don't you head over to Ryan's house for some Birthday Cake and Proper Feasting to celebrate the Immaculate Conception and Birth of our Queen and Mother, the Theotokos, who gave birth to our Lord and Savior.
I know that Mary can become a contentious issue among Christians – even among Catholics! – but I'm sure we can all agree that, at bare minimum, her life is a tremendous witness to the sanctifying, mysterious, and powerful Grace of the Incarnate Christ in our world – and that is worth a celebration!
We'll make a bunch of food and have some drinks, but as always, any and all contributions are appreciated.
Invite your friends, and if you have some, bring your kids!
Love & Rejoicing,
