I was out in front of the house the other day checking out the flowers and I thought there was some dirt on our Mary statue. When I looked closer I realized it was just that old serpent at her feet.
Today we celebrate the Memorial of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church, a feast held every year the day after Pentecost.
If you didn’t realize this, don’t be alarmed. Pope Francis, in 2018 decreed it be put on our Roman Calendar to highlight the special role of Mary.
