by the Reverend Canon Andrew J. W. Mullins
Saturday, August 15th is the Feast of St. Mary the Virgin: Mother of Our Lord Jesus Christ, she is recognized by many as the ultimate example of obedience to God. The day is a public holiday in many parts of Europe and the world. Mary’s Song found in Luke 1:46-55 begins, “My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant.”
