My funny memory about Marymas
I’d like to share one of my funny memories about the Feast of the Nativity of Mary. Above all, I really love the Feast since I was a young child. In particular, I especially loved the midnight fireworks from the bell tower.
I can tell you a silly story about that: once during these fireworks to celebrate the Nativity of Mary in my country village, some people said:
“Now they are going to blow up the bell tower indeed“
Hence, I spent about 6 years of my childhood feeling sorry for that poor priest who had to rebuild the bell tower every year!
Happy Birthday, Mary!
The Birth of Mary is really important because it is a prelude to the Coming of Christ: now you know how to say Happy Birthday, Mary!
