With the New Year less than half a day old, many of St Clare's parishioners gathered to celebrate Holy Mass on this 'New Year's Day.' As ever, we were celebrating the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, the sign of the woman that the Church sets before us each new year
At Mass we were reminded that it was through Mary that the 'Word became flesh,' but that it is through us that the incarnation goes on in our world today. It is the task of every Christian to make Jesus present through his or her actions. It is through the intercession of Blessed Mary that we are able to do this.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
