19th January

One of my Christmas presents was a booklet DAY BY DAY WITH MARY, THE MOTHER OF GOD. For each day in the year it contains a quote from a notable Catholic person about Mary. Today’s quote is by Servant of God Catherine Doherty, a social worker and foundress of the Madonna House Apostolate.

Mary of a thousand titles, Mary my mother, teach me, teach us, faith, trust, selflessness, poverty, detachment, obedience, and caritas, love of your Son!

Yesterday I spoke about the plight of some 100 million Christians who are persecuted worldwide for their faith. If you want to read more, the article below is from the Irish Catholic of Jan 14. The photo is of an Orthodox church which was burned down by Islamists in Minya, Egypt.
