Birth of Mary (September 8)

Along with the birth of Jesus and of St. John the Baptist, Mary's birth has been celebrated by the Church from early times. In fourth-century Jerusalem, a feast of her birth was already being celebrated at the Church of St. Ann. Mary's birth is seen always as part of God's plan for the salvation of the world through Jesus Christ.
