Mama Mary’s Special Day
September 8, 2011 by staff
Mama Mary’s Special Day, When was the Mother of God born? We cannot know for sure, of course, but for almost 15 centuries, the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary is celebrated on September 8. Those who are quick with math have already noticed that September 8 is exactly nine months after December 8 – the feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary.
In previous centuries, the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary is celebrated with greater fanfare. Now, most Catholics probably do not realize that the Church has a special holiday set aside to celebrate. But as the Immaculate Conception, the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary is an important date in our history of salvation. Christ needs a mother, and Mary’s conception and birth, therefore, are events without the birth of Christ would not have been possible.
No wonder, then, that Christians in the second century AD recorded the details of Mary’s birth in the documents, such as the Gospel of James and the Gospel of the Nativity of Mary. Although none of the documents has the authority of Scripture, we provide everything we know about Mary’s life before the Annunciation, including the names of the parents of St. Mary, St. Joachim and St. Anne (or Anna). It is a good example of tradition, supplementing (not contradict) the Scripture.
