Deuteronomy, Chapter 5, Verse 29
Would that they might always be of such a mind, to fear me and to keep all my commandments! Then they and their descendants would prosper forever.
Our loving God knew Israel would become full of hubris and haughtiness and forget the commandments that He enjoined them and they needed a savior. Today is the Feast of the Nativity of Mary the mother of our savior: Jesus Christ. Let us will all humility; honor her is some small way today. Let us not be like the Angels of God who fell from heaven by an act of pride and rebellion by refusing to honor her. Let us be like unto Gabriel who on announcing the conception of Christ said to Mary:
Let us this day emulate Christ’s mother and ours: Mary and never weary of union with Christ through the most Holy Eucharist. This day try to spend some time in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel.
