The Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Holy Mother of God on New Year’s day, the divine and virginal motherhood of the Blessed Virgin. This title of Theotokos, Mother of God was given to Mary at the Council of Ephesus in 431 A.D. The council taught, that the humanity and divinity of Jesus could not be separated and that they exist in one person.
The Council of Ephesus affirmed that our Blessed Mother can rightfully be called the Mother of God. Mary is not Mother of God, the Father, or Mother of God, the Holy Spirit; rather, she is Mother of God, the Son–Jesus Christ.
Prayer to Mary, Mother of God –
Mary, Mother of God my mother, Queen of Peace, ask your Son Jesus to
give me the gift of peace. Pray for me for peace; peace in my heart, peace
of mind and of soul, peace in my family, peace with all whom I meet, the
peace of Jesus.
I put all my hopes in thee, all my salvation. Receive me as thy servant and cover me with the mantle of thy protection,
thou the Mother of mercy! Amen.
Happy Feast of Mary, the Mother of God!
