Mary is the Divine Page on which the Father wrote the Word of God, His Son said Saint Albert the Great. As we celebrate the Dedication of the Basilica of Saint Mary Major, reflect upon your own devotion to the Mother of God. Especially call to mind the countless saints who prayed within the walls of Saint Mary Major and seek to imitate their faith and their devotion to the Mother of God. Our Lady of the Snows, you sent down a gentle, pure-white snow from Heaven on the spot where you wanted a Church that would be dedicated in your honor. You are the Mother of God, the Theotokos, and we honor you and love you as such. Please pray for us, that we may also become God-bearers by bringing the presence of your divine Son to those in our lives who are most in need. Our Lady of the Snows, pray for us! (My Catholic Life)
