Birth of Mother Mary: Feast Day - 8th September

We celebrate the birth or the nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary on September 8 which is nine months from December 8 when we celebrate her Immaculate Conception in the Catholic Church. The parents of our mother Mary are Saints Joachim and Anne. The birth of Mary is not documented in the Bible, but not so authoritative accounts of events before and after her birth are recorded in the “Protoevangelium of James”.

Mary was not born into the world with the original sin, like other children of Adam, but pure, holy, beautiful, and glorious, adorned with all the most precious graces which became her who was chosen to be the Mother of God. She appeared indeed in the weak state of our mortality; but in the eyes of Heaven, she already transcended the highest seraph in purity, brightness, and the richest ornaments of grace.

If we celebrate the birthdays of the great ones of this earth, how ought we to rejoice in that of the Virgin Mary, presenting to God the best homage of our praises and thanksgiving for the great mercies He has shown in her, and imploring her mediation with her Son in our behalf! Christ will not reject the supplications of His mother, whom He was pleased to obey whilst on earth.

Her love, care, and tenderness for Him, the title and qualities which she bears, the charity and graces with which she is adorned, and the crown of glory with which she is honored, must incline Him readily to receive her recommendations and petitions.

On  2nd September 2022 every 6:30 PM, St John Vianney Parish starts with the Holy Rosary to Our Lady of Good Health (Velankanni) followed by Novena and Mass. All are welcome.
