|Mary, Mother of Jesus, and Saint Ann, her mother|
Today, September 8th. we celebrate the birthday of Mary, mother of Jesus. We ask our Blessed Mother to accompany women called to ordination in Ireland and throughout the world to renew our beloved church in compassionate service to the people of God.
May our international Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests walk with Mary in loving solidarity and with all who work to lift up the marginalized and oppressed in our church and world. May we celebrate the fullness of divine love in inclusive, prophetic communities where all are welcome.
Each of us is Persona Christi, the image of Christ by our baptism. Each of us is the beloved of God. Let us treat one another with mutual respect as spiritual equals and instruments of divine love and grace.
