Happy New Year!

From the Servite Friars, the Sisters who minister at The Grotto, and the entire Grotto staff, we wish you a healthy, happy and blessed new year.
Walking with the Blessed Mother Mary

We begin this New Year 2022 by praising you Lord, our God and Loving Father. With so much gratitude, we express our thanks to You, Father, for this New Year. You are indeed so concerned about us, your children. as we start to unfold another page of our faith-journey together. You gave to us, Mary, the Mother of your Only Begotten Son, to be our guide and companion on this journey. It is indeed so comforting and assuring to have not just someone with us, but the dearest Mother, as companion and guide to every step we will make this New Year.

As we celebrate today, the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, may we be able to follow her every footstep toward your Son more closely this New Year. With so much faith, hope and charity, and You as our God, we are ready and excited to begin this New Year. We can surely make this new journey a meaningful and fruitful one. Please sustain us with your presence and grace.

We ask this through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Mary, Mother of God and our Mother, intercede and pray for us.
