Nativity of Mary Giotto.jpg

The feast of the nativity of the blessed Virgin Mary, born from the tribe of Judah, from the seed of Abraham and the race of King David, from whom the Son of God was born, made man through the Holy Spirit, that men might be freed from the ancient servitude of sin.

“…this feast of Mary’s birth should remind us of God’s loving plan” (Abp. Charles J. Chaput, Installation homily).
