New Year's Day
January 1, commemorates the occasion when this rite of the Jewish religion was received by Our Lord, eight days after His birth. This festival is traceable to the year 567; it may be older. The Mass and Office give prominence to the part the Mother of Our Lord has in the work of Redemption.
