Friends of the Rosary:

Today, day eight of Christmas is the Solemnity of Mary, the Holy Mother of God, the Octave Day of Christmas. We also sanctify in Christ the New Year’s Day.

The Word took our human nature from Mary. The title “Mother of God” goes back to the third or fourth century. However, the Greek term Theotokos (“The God-bearer”) was officially consecrated as Catholic doctrine at the Council of Ephesus in 431, thus becoming the first Marian dogma.

This Catholic doctrine is based on the doctrine of Incarnation, as expressed by St. Paul: “God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law” (Galatians 4:4).

On this day the Catholic Church also celebrates the World Day of Peace, a tradition established by Pope Paul VI and confirmed by Pope John Paul II.

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!
