And the Virgin's name was Mary

There's an old hymn that's running through my mind right now, "Mary! How sweetly falls that word." Today is the feast of the "Holy Name of Mary"--a feast day that was dropped from the universal calendar for forty years, but recently restored. In my family, of the five daughters, one is named Mary, and two have Mary as their middle name. (The other two of us got Anne/Ann.) So, happy name day to Mary Kay, Jane Mary and Nell Mary.

The Feast of the Holy Name of Mary prompts me to advise you that your mother's middle name is Mary Ann.
