Family Bible Study - Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God

Gospel Passage
Luke 2:16 So they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the
child lying in the manger. 17 When they saw this, they made known what
had been told them about this child; 18 and all who heard it were amazed at

Questions for discussion -

1. Today is more than New Year’s Day. It is the feast day of Mary as Mother of

2. Do you ever ask your mother for help? Do you ever ask Mary for help? How
do you think Mary would help you?

3. Why do you think Mary is called “Queen of Peace?” How can we help God
bring peace to the world?
