Our Lady and the Octave of Christmas

Mother of Perpetual Help“In the sacred liturgy we celebrate not only the events themselves of salvation history but also the men and women and children redeemed by the Saviour who have lived and proclaimed this Mystery in a manner worthy of imitation. In all of these events and figures, the presence of our Lady is clearly discernible for she is both Mother of the Redeemer and Mother of the Redeemed.”

Over on the Priest Blog at Catholic Insight, there is a wonderful homily on Our Blessed Mother’s unique role in the Mystery of the Incarnation. The homily explains why we honour her and how she leads us to closer union with her Son, Jesus, on the path of Christian discipleship. Read it here.
