Saturday 8th September: Birthday of Our Lady

Saturday 8th September: Birthday of Our Lady

his Saturday (8 Sep) we celebrate the birth of the mother of our Lord. This day is celebrated in both the eastern and the western Churches and falls nine months after the feast of the Conception of Mary. This feast acknowledges the preparation by God of his people to receive their Saviour and Lord, putting ‘heaven in ordinary’ and showing that mortal flesh can be the bearer of Christ to the world.

If you want to take this feast a little deeper we have a reflection on Mary’s song, the Magnificat and how we can live out the words in this song.
