Happy Birthday to Our Lady!

According to the visionaries in Medjugorje, Our Lady said that TODAY (August 5th) is her actual birthday.

The Church honors Mary's birthday as the Immaculate Conception on another day of the church calendar (this being December 8th).

But today is her real day!

If she was truly 16 when she gave birth to Jesus, then she was born on August 5th in the Year 16 B.C.

Happy birthday to the wonderful Mother of us all!

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
