“Marian Feast Days of December”

My Friends,
Let us begin another incredibly blessed Marian month; and a Most Blessed new Liturgical Year. Each day we so desire to have Our Lady in our lives; might I suggest as you take the time to Pray The Rosary each and every day. I also pray that you might consider reflecting on each day’s Marian observation, to further celebrate Mary. 



1 - Our Lady of Ratisbon
This is one excellent example of Our Lady granting favors. Alphonse Rathisbonne was a French Jew who didn’t live by any faith, but rather worshipped the world he lived in with pride that was filled with ignorance. Eventually what happened one day was this: Our Lady motioned to him, with her right hand for him to kneel down. Once he knelt down, he realized how horribly sad the state of his soul was in. The next day Alphonse was baptized.
