"The body, and it alone, is capable of making visible what is invisible: the spiritual and the divine. It was created to transfer into the visible reality of the world the mystery hidden since time immemorial in God, and thus be a sign of it." JPII - Theology of the Body

The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin
Is there any creature to whom the Son of God has said, “My Mother”? No, certainly, that was due to this Virgin alone, who had carried Him for nine months in her sacred womb. Let us conclude then, following this great saint, that the greatest title that can be given to the Holy Virgin is to name her Mother of God.” - Saint Francis de Sales, in his Sermon on Our Lady’s Nativity, 1620
Happy Birthday to the Woman that brought me to her Son, on my knees and continues to reveal His merciful love to me everyday through the glorious power of a mothers intercession.
