“On this first day of the year,
may the Lord help us all to set out
more decisively on the path
of justice and peace.” Pope Francis
Today the Church celebrates the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, our Lady's greatest title. This feast is the octave (eighth day)  of Christmas. According to the 1962 Missal of Saint John XXIII the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, today is also the Solemnity of Circumcision of Our Lord.  And since 1967, January 1 has been designated as the World Day of Peace.
