Blessed Mother, the Baby stirs in your womb and you smile, knowing how near Heaven is to all the earth. You desired to share your joy with all, but kept silent, knowing the time had not yet come. Blessed Mother, through your intercession help us in these final days before the Feast of Christmas, to ponder in our hearts all of God’s benevolence for us, and to proclaim proudly His Name and that we are His children in every aspect of our lives. Amen. God bless you all!
