“While they were there, the time came for her to have her child, and she gave birth to her firstborn son. She wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.”

— Luke 2:6-7

In Chimbote, Peru La Maternidad de Maria, a maternity hospital for women, is beautifully named after our dear Blessed Mother, Mary. This sculpture on the side of the administration building greets all who come to this facility.

 

Jesus, with gratitude we thank You for La Maternidad de Maria which offers women, who have nowhere else to turn, a safe and clean place to give birth. We thank You for the beautiful gift of life in the 100,000+ babies born here more than fifty years since its founding.
