Wishing you all a truly Blessed and grace-filled New Year. Whatever this new year may bring, I pray that you be filled with all peace and joy and comfort in our Blessed Lord.

Today isn’t only the first day of the New Year but also the beautiful Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God. Churchyear.net explains this  lovely feast this way,

When Catholics celebrate the Solemnity of Mary Mother of God we are not only honoring Mary, who was chosen among all women throughout history to bear God incarnate, but we are also honoring our Lord, who is fully God and fully human. Calling Mary “mother of God” is the highest honor we can give Mary. Just as Christmas honors Jesus as the “Prince of Peace,” the Solemnity of Mary Mother of God honors Mary as the “Queen of Peace” This solemnity, falling on New Year’s Day, is also designated the World Day of Peace.”
