Happy Birthday, Blessed Mother!

Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary by Murillo

With all of the craziness of the past several days, I nearly forgot today is the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary! We need cake!!!

Thank you for all of your care, dear Mother.

Let the whole creation therefore sing praise and dance and unite to celebrate the glories of this day. Today let there be one common feast of those in heaven and those on earth. Let everything that is, in the world and above the world, join together in rejoicing. For today a shrine is built for the Creator of the universe. The creature is newly made ready as a divine dwelling for the Creator.

Saint Andrew of Crete (660-740), monk and Bishop
Homily 1 for the Nativity of the Holy Mother of God; PG 97, 805 (trans. Breviary)
