Dedication of Saint Mary Major
God Our Father, the Basilica of Saint Mary Major was the first church built to honor Mary as Mother of God. A Roman couple had promised their inheritance to her, and one night she told them, in separate dreams, to construct a church. The Pope also had this dream; at the same time, snow fell on the site Mary had indicated, despite the summer warmth, and so the basilica was built. I ask the Blessed Mother to pray for the conversion of sinners throughout the world, that we may all accept the love of her Son. May our churches soon be filled with those who now are lost. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us. Amen.
