Today is the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary…aka Mama’s birthday!! What better way to celebrate Christ’s perfect mother than by having ourselves a little tea party lunch. Oliver even joined us, making it his first ever liturgical tea! Once the girls saw how lovely the table was set they insisted on wearing the dresses and shoes they wore to my mum’s wedding last weekend. So sweet! We sang Immaculate Mary and then tucked in. I love celebrating our Lady’s special days together as a way to honor her and remind myself that she is truly our mother and she knows the heart we have for our children. I can always trust her with my intentions because as Christ’s mum, I know He will hear her.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
