Prayer for The Feast of the Nativity of Mary

For September 9th


The Nativity, aka birth, of Mary is celebrated on September 8th, nine months after the celebration of Mary's Immaculate Conception on December 8th. The Church honors the birthday of Mary because she is the mother of Jesus, the Lord and Savior of all humanity. While we don't know the exact birth date of Mary, the Church sets aside September 8th to celebrate it.

Prayer For The Feast of the Birth of Mary
God Our Father,
Give your chosen people
your help and strength.
The birth of the Virgin Mary's son
was the dawn of our salvation.
May our celebration of her nativity
bring us closer to lasting peace
and may the virtues that she modeled
develop in our lives,
to love you and our neighbors more perfectly.
Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen
