Happy Birthday, Blessed Mother

Today we celebrate the birthday of Our Lady, Queen of Heaven. How amazing to think of Joachim and Anne, in their old age, not only having a child (finally!) but having THIS child.
The woman who would herself carry the Word Incarnate. Certainly a day to celebrate!

The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary

So, however you did it, I do hope you found a moment to celebrate this most wonderful birthday.

In our house, as with most things, that means cake. I was helping out with a project after Mass and then #1 had a writing class so I was in a bit of a time crunch. Still, cake is cake. So, we started with a family rosary...
He steals everyone's rosary but who can be angry at that sweet face?

They did pretty well. Might make it a weekly exercise.
Happy Birthday, Holy Mother of God.
Pray for us sinners!
