Joy in Mother Mary: Monday, August 15th, 2016 (Assumption)

Listen to the homily here.


“Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb.  And how does this happen to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?  For at the moment the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy.”

Joy from Mother Mary:
·      Visiting Elizabeth
·      “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my Savior for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.”

Joy is deeper than the surface
·      Joy can even be with challenges
·      For instance: parishioner getting ready for his funeral

Let us continue to ask Mother Mary for our prayers—good or bad, healthy or sick, rich or poor
