    I always say to my self that the BLESSED VIRGIN MOTHER is the ONLY, and i repeat the ONLY MOTHER that we have who hears us whenever we call on her, in what ever situations that we may found our selfs in. For some weeks now, i have been praying to the BLESSED MOTHER for my friend called Happy, who was to give birth to her baby girl some days ago. I have been telling our BLESSED MOTHER, that you are BLESSED among all women, therefore, please be all to assist my friend Happy to deliver her baby in safe and sound for the GLORIFICATION of the name of your SON our LORD JESUS CHRIST. Could you believe that just today, the day of her IMMACULATE CONCEPTION, that my friend Happy has given birth to her beautiful baby girl. To me, our BLESSED MOTHER has given this date of birth (8/12) the day of HER IMMACULATE CONCEPTION as a wounderful gift from HEAVEN for the baby, and as a sign that SHE heard me when i called on her as my MOTHER. AM PROUD TO BE A CATHOLIC, AND TO ALL, I SAY THAT, WE HAVE SUCH A WOUNDER MOTHER WHO IS ALWAYS READY TO HEAR US WHENEVER WE CALL ON HER.

    Thank you for sharing your gift of writing with others. I love this article, as we all need a constant reminder to look to God and remember his will be done, not ours. Mary is an amazing woman.

    Thank you Mrs. Hartline for your sharing of The Blessed Mary Immaculate. I praise God and ask Mother Mary to always guide us all in our world today to intercede and show us her gentle ways and humble love she had for Jesus as we meditate on the mysteries through the rosary. Happy FEAST Day of Immaculate Mary ! Our Queen in Heaven pray for us!

    I lost my mother two years ago. It is a terrible grief, one that I am unable to warn my friends about. I tell them, love your mother now, you don't know how much time you have. But still they delay visits, procrastinate phone calls, etc.

    My mother was the one who introduced me to my faith. Whenever I think of the Blessed Mother, I also think of my mother. What a rich and lasting gift my mother gave me.
