of the Blessed
Birth of Mary -
The first prophecy referring to Mary is found in the
very opening chapters of the Book of Genesis (3:15). On September 8, Catholics celebrate the birth of
Saint Anne or
Anna is known by tradition as the mother of The Virgin Mary. According
to the non-canonical Gospel of James, Anna and her husband Joachim,
after years of childlessness, were visited by an angel who told them
that they would conceive a child. Anna promised to dedicate the child to
God's service. Mary is the mother of Jesus Christ. The Church has celebrated Mary's birth since at least
the sixth century.
The birth of Mary was miraculous. She was conceived
without sin as a special grace because God had selected her to become
the mother of His Son. The dogma of the Immaculate Conception of the
Virgin Mary, though generally believed throughout the Church for many
centuries, was formally declared by Pope Pius IX in 1854.
Thy birth, O Virgin Mother of
heralded joy to all the world.
For from thou hast risen the Sun of justice,
Christ our God.
Destroying the curse, He gave blessing;
and damning death, He bestowed on us
Blessed art thou among women
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.
For from thou hast risen of Sun of justice,
Christ our God.
