January 2011 - Marian Feasts
©2011 James Dacey, Jr. SFO
Welcome to yet another fantastic year, a year that will be fully 100% devoted to our dear Lord. And we will rejoice and praise and celebrate His love, with Mary (Our Dear Blessed Mother) as we pray the Rosary deepening our love for Him. Today I am going to do like I use to always do on the first of the month; and that is post the entire months "Marian Feasts" for the month. So many I have never heard of, and so many more for us to look into. It's very interesting, but it further deepens our love for our Lady knowing how involved her presence is known throughout the world and throughout time. It's interesting and fun, I will also connect many links to further your own study of these wonderful Marian Celebrations.
