Thought for the Day – 1 January ” Mother of God” Blessed J H Newman

Thought for the Day – 1 January – The Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God and the Octave Day of the Nativity of the Lord

The Blessed Virgin is Theotocus, Deipara, or Mother of God….God is her Son, as truly as anyone of us is the son of his own mother….What dignity can be too great to attribute to her who is as closely bound up, as intimately one, with the Eternal Word, as a mother is with a son?   What outfit of sanctity, what fullness and redundance of grace, what exuberance of merits must have been hers, when once we admit the supposition …. that her Maker really did regard those merits and take them into account, when He condescended “not to abhor the Virgin’s womb”?
Is it surprising then, that on the one hand she should be immaculate in her Conception? or on the other that she should be honoured with an Assumption and exalted as a queen with a crown of twelve stars, with the rules of day and night to do her service?

Men sometimes wonder that we call her Mother of life, of mercy, of salvation – what are all these titles compared to that one name, Mother of God? (Certain Difficulties felt by Anglicans in Catholic Teaching, ii, 3)

Blessed John Henry Newman (1801-1890)

Immaculate Queen, Mary, Mother of God, Pray for Us!

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings.

  1. Peace. How can it begin until we stop the slaughter of Holy Unborn Innocents? John Henry Neuman his style of prose makes him one of my favorite authors and, of course, he is so inspiring. Just a couple of : “one man’s opinion (s).” HH

  2. We pray Hughie – we pray to her. Never forget “in the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph!” and yes, I can’t wait for the announcement of his Canonisation. We need to have a party together.
