Most Holy Name of Mary

If September 12th hadn't come on a Sunday this year, we'd be commemorating the Most Holy Name of Mary.  I posted this story here a few years ago, but it's now posted on The Anglo-Catholic.  If you haven't read it, have a look at "Coffee, Pastry, and Our Lady."

We beseech thee, O Lord, pour into our hearts the abundance of thy heavenly grace: That like as the child-bearing of the Blessed Virgin Mary was unto us thy servants the beginning of salvation, so the devout remembrance of her Most Holy Name may avail for the increasing of our peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
