To Mary, a model of Faith

Written by H.E. Cardinal
Angelo Comastri

Virgin Mary,
The lantern of Your faith has always been lighted;
You are the Advocate! Put oil in our poor lanterns
so that the light of our life enlightens “the Holy Face of Jesus”.



Virgin Mary, we are people of little faith;
A single sign of difficulty scares us;
A single doubt dampens our enthusiasm.





Help our frail faith!

Virgin Mary,
You remained faithful near the Cross of Jesus, Our Saviour!
You believed that love prevails
You never doubted that the crucified love defeats hate and evilness.



Our Mother, pray for us!
Help us to believe as You believed!

Amen

NATIVIDADE DE MARIA

NATIVIDADE DE MARIA
 
O nascimento de uma criança é sempre uma grande festa na familia. No dia 8 de Setembro celebra-se o nascimento da Virgem Maria: a Natividade de Maria.
Tal festa tem origem no ano 430, quando São Maurilio a introduziu na diócese de Angers, na França, em consequência de uma revelação. Dizem que um homem da cidade de Angers encontrava-se no campo, na noite de 8 Setembro daquele ano, quando ouviu anjos cantando no Céu.  Perguntou-lhes qual o motivo do cantico e responderam que festejavam com alegria o dia do nascimento de Nossa Senhora.

Letter to Baby Jesus

To Baby Jesus
Stars Street
Heaven

I’m here at the church, just for curiosity, to see you in the crib in a moment when nobody is in.
I need to ask you some questions. I know that during your life you had a lot of troubles and some of yours don’t skimped  criticism, malicious questions and bad opinion about your actions. But why when you do  good you are always insulted? THE HUMAN HISTORY IS ALWAYS THE SAME!
