The Birth of our Daughter, Mari

Our daughter, Mari, was born today, 20th  June 2012, the last day of Spring, at 11:00 a.m., weighing 3.55 kg, at Mater Dei Hospital, Malta.

Our hearts are overflowing with joy and gratitude to our God and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

We named her Mari after the Mother of our Lord. It means ‘Bitter’ - yet it is still a beautiful name.

We pray that our daughter, who in God's providence will also have her share of bitterness, will also experience the joy and sweet love that only the Lord can give.

May she, like the Blessed Mother, believe His Word, and rejoice in God our Saviour.

Thank you for your prayer and kind wishes.

Joe, Joanne,
John, Elizabeth and MARI.
