Mother of God, Queen of Peace

Thursday, January 02, 2014
Today we invoke the prayers of Our Lady under the title “Mother of God”. It seems fitting that Our Lady should have a feast in the Christmas Octave given her fundamental role in the events of Christ’s birth, and indeed the history of salvation. During this season we sing the Alma Redemptoris mater in which we pray, Tu quae genuisti, natura mirante, tuum sanctum Genitorem, Virgo prius ac posterius - 'You, in the wonder of all creation, have brought forth your Creator, Mother ever-Virgin'. Read more

So, Our Lady of Walsingham carries a special significance to the Christians of our land. The National Shrine reminds us of the ancient faith we hold, which has shaped our culture and graced our people over the centuries. Walsingham remains a beautiful witness to the Annunciation at Nazareth, when God 'pitched his tent among us', taking our human flesh to himself in Jesus Christ. Read more
