September 8, 2022 Reflection – The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary!

The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary!

 

September 8, 2022

Dear Family of Mary!

Today Holy Mother Church holds a feast! It is the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary! It is her birthday party! Situated nine months after the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, this feast celebrates Mary’s birth!! What joy! How much the Father in Heaven must have celebrated on that day! This little one would become the mother of His Son, Jesus!

Franjo told me that Our Lady told the visionaries in the very early days that it is important to celebrate each person’s birthday.  The custom for the Croatians was to make a big deal of their “Name Day” and not so much of a deal about their actual birthday.  The “Name Day” is the feast day of the saint that the person was named after!  So if you were named after St. Patrick, your party would be on St. Patrick’s day.

But Our Lady made it clear that the actual birthday of each one of us is to be celebrated in a special way because each one of us is unique and very special to God.  That is why she told them that her real birthday is on August 5!  And we celebrate it now in a special way!

Even so, this day is very special, because the Church has made it a Feast!  So let’s celebrate Our Lady’s Birthday today!  Actually we should celebrate her birthday every day of the year, because she is the Mother of Jesus. What would we have done without her???

Let’s pray this beautiful Litany of Loreto today on this special day.  Our Lady is so wonderful, so gracious and kind!  We love her so much!!!!
