Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary [Saint of the Day for September 8]

Added 8 September 2017 by Franciscan Media

Affirming the humanity of Jesus, the Church celebrates the birth of Mary, his mother. While Scripture does not record the birth of Mary, the apocryphal Protoevengelium of James notes the development of Christian piety around Mary's parents and her birth.
