And our Mother; funnily enough today used to be celebrated purely as  ‘The Circumcision’, on account of this is when Jesus would have been circumcised, at 8 days old (St Luke,chapter 2, verse 21).  I don’t know why it changed.  Perhaps circumcision is no longer something people feel polite about mentioning.

Prayer: Hail, Mary.

Songs: lots of music for Mary, e.g. ‘Hail Mary, Mother of Our God’ which I really like, but have not heard sung since I was in junior 4 (year 6) at school.
