Happy Birthday, Blessed Mother!

Birthdays are always joyous occasions in families. On September 8th, the Church, the Family of God celebrates the Birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

We can bake or purchase a white cake to symbolize Our Lady’s purity and top it with a circle of 10 candles to represent one decade of the rosary.

Pray a “Hail Mary” as each you light each candle and then sing Happy Birthday.

Rejoice, O earth, because from the womb of Anna, as from a fertile vine, has sprung a sweet ripe cluster. To the harvesting of this vineyard all are invited, none are excluded - it is the joy of all.  ~ St. John Damascene

  1. Truly beautiful. I shared this on Facebook.com/MyMotherMary . Please visit :) :)

  2. This is beautiful. I wish there were some non-food ways to celebrate that were just as beautiful. We have tons of food allergies, sensitivities, and diabetes in our family, so the vast majority of celebrations posted on blogs and fb are not doable for us. :/
