our lady, our lady's feast, blessed virgin Mary, mother Mary

Our Lady is known by many different titles (Blessed Mother, Madonna, Our Lady), epithets (Star of the Sea, Queen of Heaven, Cause of Our Joy), invocations (Theotokos, Panagia, Mother of Mercy) and other names (Our Lady of Loreto, Our Lady of Guadalupe).

All of these titles refer to the same individual named Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ and are used variably by Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, and some Anglicans. (Note: Mary Magdalene, Mary of Clopas, and Mary Salome are different individuals from Mary, mother of Jesus.)

Many of the titles given to Mary are dogmatic in nature. Other titles are poetic or allegorical and have lesser or no canonical status, but which form part of popular piety, with varying degrees of acceptance by the clergy. Yet more titles refer to depictions of Mary in the history of art.

Almost everyday of the year, a Feast is celebrated in different parts of the World in honour of the blessed virgin Mary. This Feasts constitute of stories of how the Titles given to our blessed Mother came up in that particular place where it is being celebrated. The following feast and their feast days have been put up here, not just for the sake of knowledge or entertainment, but for the sake of an ever growing love for the Blessed Virgin Mary, who loved us first.
