I know many of you know this story, but to give glory to our Blessed Mother, I tell it every year.
My Mom and Dad had been married and trying to start a family for eight years when she was told she was infertile. They did the Immaculate Conception Novena and I was born the following year on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.
My sweet Mother of God, Thank you for the magnificent gift of life and all of its enrichment in these 55 years and for always watching my back. I am always at Cana asking for your intercession and pray you never grow weary of my petitions. I love you, need you and ask you to continue to be present in my life and the lives of those I love, keeping us on the path that leads to your Son.
