Friends of the Rosary,
Today is the feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Nine months after the Immaculate Conception, on December 8th, we celebrate the birth of Mary as the child of Saints Joachim and Anne, on September 8th.
Mary was conceived and born immaculate and full of grace.
As St Augustine described, the birth was an event of cosmic and historic significance.
Our Lady was born to be the mother of the Savior of the world, the spiritual mother of all men, and the holiest and most perfect of God’s creatures.
We rejoice that the Mother of God is Our Mother, too.
In Mary all human nature is exalted.
