The Nativity of the Virgin Mary
Birth of the Virgin by Bertolome Murillo
The liturgy today commemorates the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This feast, very important to popular piety, leads us to admire in Mary the Child, the purest dawn of the Redemption. We are contemplating a little girl like every other, at the same time the only one who was "blessed among women" (Lk 1:42). Mary was the immaculate "Daughter of Zion", destined to become the Mother of the Messiah. ~ St. John Paul II
