8th September - Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Posted on 8th September, 2019


Today, 8th September, but for Sunday, we would be celebrating the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. To my delight, we shall nevertheless be commemorating it in our community by a special Votive Mass and the proper Divine Office tomorrow instead.


Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Below is a hymn for Our Lady's Birthday written by one of the sisters of our Carmel which we will be singing at Lauds and Vespers:


Radiant Dawn of our salvation,
Hope of life for all the earth!
Now we sing God's new creation
On this day of such a birth.
Virgin, thou art filled with beauty;
Spot and stain are not in thee.
God has made thee perfect duly
For thy Son's divinity.


Cry, O Blessed, to high heaven;
Sing our praise, O Spotless One!
We, thy children, are forgiven
Through thy Maker, Lord and Son.
God has looked on thee with favour;
Generations this acclaim,
We rejoice in God, thy Saviour,
For with thee we praise his Name.
