How does one adequately prepare for and celebrate the birth of the Queen of Heaven?

Thankfully this week during School Mass on Wednesday, Father Mike reminded us how important it is to have confidence in what we do know as opposed to what we do not know. This reflection helped prepare us for how we would celebrate the Nativity of the Virgin Mother the very next day.

We would celebrate Her with virtuous actions, joy and bright smiles. We would celebrate Her with songs and by moving our healthy bodies outside. And finally, at the end of the day, we would honor Her in collective prayer.

That’s how we celebrate the Holy Mother at Saint Mary’s Catholic School. Today, tomorrow and always!

Note: As we celebrate the birth of the Queen of Heaven, we also solemnly acknowledge the passing of an earthly queen. Shortly after the UK announced the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II yesterday, Pope Francis sent a telegram to offer his condolences to King Charles III for the death of his mother, the UK’s longest-serving monarch.
