The Virgin Mary's Birthday

By September 8, 2013

Follow me on:

When was the Mother of God born?Icon of the Nativity of the Mother of God, egg tempera on wood, Central Russia, mid-1800's.  (Photo © Slava Gallery, LLC; used with permission.) We can't know for certain, of course, but for almost 15 centuries now, the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary has been celebrated on September 8. Those who are quick with math have already figured out that September 8 is exactly nine months after December 8--the feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary.

In earlier centuries, the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary was celebrated with greater fanfare--indeed, Mary's birth is one of only three celebrated by the Church. (See Who Was Born Without Original Sin? for more details.) Today, however, most Catholics probably don't even realize that the Church has a special feast day set aside to celebrate it. But, like the Immaculate Conception, the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary is an important date in our salvation history. Christ needed a mother, and Mary's conception and birth, therefore, are events without which Christ's own birth would have been impossible.

It's no surprise, then, that the Christians of the second century A.D. recorded the details of Mary's birth in such documents as the Protoevangelium of James and the Gospel of the Nativity of Mary. While neither document bears the authority of Scripture, they provide us with everything that we know about the life of Mary before the Annunciation, including the names of Saint Mary's parents, Saint Joachim and Saint Anna (or Anne). It's a good example of Tradition, which complements (while never contradicting) Scripture.

You’ll be a fool to celebrate it; and beside, the World of Yahweh doesn’t say anything about the “virgin conception of mary”, it is a man made fable. The only person who was born without sin is the Lord Jesus Chris, because He was born by the vertue of the Holy Spirit.

If it was important that the person through who the Lord was to come in the world be sinless, that implied that not only mary had to be born without sin but mary’s ancestries (mother, father, grandfather, grandmother, and so on…. King david, solomon, abraham,…) had to be born without sin. Please, worship only Yahweh God, the Lord Jesus.

our homeschool group celebrates with a picnic and we make a rosary using cupcakes [dyed baby blue]. after lunch we gather around the cupcakes and say a decade of Hail Marys. Its emotional to hear 60+ people [including the children's voices] saying the prayers. It also brings to light the importance of her birth and all mother’s births.

Mary,
You were born under the sign of the cross, not under any zodiac sign. Renounce this, if you are a Christian. (Danger!)
Much love, in the name of Jesus, through the intercession of His and Our Blessed Mother!
Amen!

(9) Losano says:

This is an abomination. All the glory and praises must only be render to the Lord Jesus Christ, for He is the only one who died for our find on the cross. He was the only who was able to take the book and to break the seven seals; He is the only one who defeated satan; He is the only one who can lead us to the Kingdom of Heavens, for He is the way, the truth, the life.

(75) foreignobservor says:

Giving Mary devotion directly or indirectly, praying to her, bowing down to images and icons of her, is worshiping the creation rather than the Creator. It is idolatrous, and Christians are instructed to “flee from idolatry.” (1 Corinthians 10:14) When the Gentile Cornelius bowed reverently to the apostle Peter, note what happened: “As Peter entered, Cornelius met him, fell down at his feet and did obeisance to him. But Peter lifted him up, saying: ‘Rise; I myself am also a man.’” (Acts 10:25, 26) Bowing worshipfully to a human was improper, and Peter would not accept it. Also, after receiving a vision from an angel, the apostle John reports: “I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel that had been showing me these things. But he tells me: ‘Be careful! Do not do that! All I am is a fellow slave of you and of your brothers who are prophets and of those who are observing the words of this scroll. Worship God.’” (Revelation 22:8, 9) If not even an angel of God is to be worshiped, how much less humans or images of them.That such devotion to Mary may result in improper worship is acknowledged by The Catholic Encyclopedia. An early edition of this work stated: “That popular devotion to the Blessed Virgin was often attended with extravagance and abuses, it is impossible to deny.”From what source would such an unscriptural doctrine come? The underlying source has to be God’s Adversary, Satan the Devil. (John 8:44) Did Mary later have other children?—Matthew 13:55, 56; Mark 6:3; Luke 8:19-21; John 2:12; 7:5; Acts 1:14; 1 Corinthians 9:5.

A Special Prayer to the Blessed Mary Ever Virgin
Hail O Mary, full of grace!
Ev’r virgin with heav’nly gaze!
Mother of Christ and human race!
Bless’d lady with divine face!

Handmaiden of Son of God;
Woman who crushed the Serpent’s head;
Help of dying and those dead;
Favoured-most amongst kindred!

Virgin who bore Christ Jesus;
Have pity and pray for us;
Don our souls with Heaven’s dress;
Free us from all sins, trespass!

Mary with heart immaculate;
Succour to souls until date;
One who changes hell-bound state;
We pray, plead to better our fate!

Queen atop God’s mountain’s peak!
Perpetual aid of those who seek;
Mediatrix, miraculous , meek;
Strengthen minds, bodies, hearts weak!

Sorrowing heart that bears sorrows;
One who makes pleasant morrows;
Comfort of hearts pierced with arrows;
Better our lives and how world goes!

Mary with her Lamb of God;
Mother of the Saviour Lord;
‘Rosaried’ Virgin of Word;
Grant Peace to all souls and world!

Mary assumed into Heaven!
Give us health, relieve our pain;
Change to boon, our every bane;
Help us walk in Heaven’s lane!

“Happy Birthday, Dear Mother Mary!”

Our Lady’s actual birthday is on 3 August as can be read from the link below.

http://www.thewarningsecondcoming.com/my-birthday-is-a-very-special-feast-day/

I asked a priest if it was correct and the answer is as follows:

Quote:

It is correct!
It is mentioned in Medugorje, Holy Love and also in St. Catherine Emmerich’s book!

“Our Lady revealed to the Medjugorje visionaries, in 1984, that Her true birthday is August 5 and that this particular birthday, August 5, 1984, would be Her 2,000th. This revelation was the cause of great joy for the whole village. For three days leading up to August 5th, they fasted and there was continuous prayer. Confessions were heard from the beginning of the day until late at night, the priests took no rest the entire day. So many people wanted the Sacrament that a call was put out around the region for more priests to come and help. Great numbers of people were converted. In anticipation of this day, Our Lady said:

“The priests who will hear Confessions will have great joy on that day.”

The visionaries said Our Lady was “very joyful” during these three days of fasting and continuous prayer and Our Lady repeated:

“I am very happy! Continue, continue. Continue to pray and to fast. Continue and make me happy each day.”

Later, the priests involved related that never in their lives had they felt such joy in their hearts.
On August 5, 1984, when Our Lady appeared to the visionaries, She was very happy and said the following message:

August 5, 1984—OUR LADY’S TWO THOUSANDTH BIRTHDAY

“Never in my life have I cried with sorrow, as I have cried this evening with joy. Thank you!”

“Happy 2027th!! Love you Blessed Mother.”
that quotation is from the Facebook – Jesus to Mankind/

And also the same date was given to the saint Catharina Emmerich … So all those information are correct!
At least here there is not confusion…

Mother, you stood by our Lord, Jesus, during His most difficult moments. You endured all those pains and gave Him up to die in order to redeem us, your children. May the Cross of our Lord, Jesus Christ, turn to crown in our lives. May those sufferings and pains not be in vein in our lives. AMEN. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOTHER!

YES IT IS TRUE,

I have been to MEDJUGORJE, and Our Lady told the visionaries, that the 5 th of August is her true Birthday.
I was there on that day in 1992, and brought Her a cake.

She is the Most Beautiful ” Mother that came from the people. “

Happy Birthday My Most Beautiful Mother Mary! I am honored and bless to be your child. You, my Mother were given to me and to all of humanity by your Son as he died for our sins. I know that Heaven rejoices today and thanks the Holy Trinity for gift of the Queen of Heaven. Bless the world, pray for its people. We need your intercession before the throne of God. Pray for all those who are dying this day, that they may be saved on your Birthday. Pray for the souls in Purgatory, that they may be released and join the Heavenly celebration of your Birthday! Pray for us Mother Mary, that one day all those who call upon you will have the honor of celebrating in Heaven your Birthday. Love always, your children on earth.

Go tell them that I love them and tell them that Mary has no knowledge of anything [happening on Earth] and the only One that they must exalt is Me, because neither Mary, nor St. Gregory nor any other saint can offer salvation. I am the only One who saves and outside of Me – nobody, nobody, nobody- saves!” He repeated it three times – that nobody could save; only He saves. Humanity has been deceived believing in an assumed saint, which is not, but is a demon, working through an idol made by the hand of man.

Prayer to the Blessed Virgin (never known to fail):
Oh, most beautiful flower of Mt. Carmel, fruitful vine, splendor of Heaven, Blessed Mother of the Son of God, immaculate Virgin, assist me in my necessity. Oh, Star of the Sea, help me and show me that You are my Mother. Oh Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth, I humbly beseech You from the bottom of my heart to succor me in my necessity (make request). There are none that can withstand Your power. Oh Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us to have recourse to Thee (3 times) . Holy Mary, I place this prayer in Your hands (3 times). Say the prayer for 3 consecutive days. Must be published, and it will be granted to you. Thank you for answering my prayers.

(103) Ej Redila says:

You’ll be a fool to celebrate it; and beside, the World of Yahweh doesn’t say anything about the “virgin conception of mary”, it is a man made fable. The only person who was born without sin is the Lord Jesus Chris, because He was born by the vertue of the Holy Spirit.

If it was important that the person through who the Lord was to come in the world be sinless, that implied that not only mary had to be born without sin but mary’s ancestries (mother, father, grandfather, grandmother, and so on…. King david, solomon, abraham,…) had to be born without sin. Please, worship only Yahweh God, the Lord Jesus.

those people who don’t believe in the immaculate conception of the blessed Mother are the ungrateful people.. they are like children who have been born on earth with much care of the mother yet when they grow they don’t even acknowledge their Mother.. well Mary is ever humble Mother, right? I’m proud of being a convert catholic & i experience Mary’s help & motherly affection in my life.. I am more peaceful & happy because of her unceasing prayer for me.. for those who are against of our belief I pray that you may be forgiven & someday I will laugh at your unbelief.. Watch out that you may not swallow your pride!

yes,it is Jesus we are going to worship and the glory of God the Father..but it doesnt mean that we reject His saints and mama mary because they are the living instrument to our salvation to close to Jesus as our Saviour and Lord..”He who rejects you(all Gods People,apostles,His saints etc.)reject me..(st.Luke 10:16).there is no version in the bible leterraly written that God prohibited us to respect and obey Mama Mary…..if we study the Holy Bible a person who possess by the Holy Spirit greeted with respect to Mary…open St. Luke chapter 1 verse 41 to 43…and Elizabeth was filled by the holy Spirit greeted Mary,blessed arth though among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb..there are many person said that the holy spirit is in them but they look down Mary…but as a christian we also extend our respect and love for them..thank you..Happy happy birthday Mama Mary for the glory of God forever..Amen…thanks and God bless…

Los(t)ano and other LOST people like him:

“There are people who believe in the sun even though it is not shining.
Simply because it’s there. No proofs needed. No dates to be verified. No written texts that appeared anywhere for it to be recognized.”

IT’s IN THE HEART. NOT IN THE BRAINS which often always fail to recognize the truth.

Mother Mary is the mother of Jesus, conceived without sin.
Our love and respect for Mama Mary stems from the heart.

Deal with it.

NO ONE CAN EVER IMAGINE HOW MUCH LOVE SHE HAD TO JESUS.THAT’S WHY JESUS DIDN’T ALLOW HER BODY TO CORRODE IN THIS WORLD,HE TOOK HER TO HEAVEN BODY AND SOUL.NO ONE ELSE OTHER THAN JESUS AND MARY HAVE GONE TO HEAVEN WITH BODY AND SOUL AFTER RESURRECTION. IF YOU BELIEVE JESUS IS ALIVE TODAY,WE HAVE TO ALSO BELIEVE MARY IS ALIVE BECAUSE ITS THE TRUTH.

Jesus is the only son of mama Mary..please study hard,because it is important to preach the gospel to tell the truth…the so called brothers of Jesus is not leterally sons of Mama Mary…they are the cousin of Jesus…it is the costume of jews that even cousin called to be brother…James,joseph,simon and judas mentioned in Mathew 13:55 are sons of mama Marys sister,try to research it honesty…In Isaias 7:14,singular form,,a virgin son not plural form…Jesus is the only Son of Mama Mary…and then,we catholics did not worshipped an images as god..in exodus 25:18-20..God commanded Moises to make an images…meaning not all images are an idol…St. Peter did not allowed cornelius to worship him,because Cornelius worhipped Peter as God…thats not the doctrine of the catholic church…we honor saints as veneration not adoration…proven…open acts..16:29,the jailer called for a light,rushed in,and fell trembling at the feet of st. Paul…oh see?remember No verses found in the bible leterraly said that God prohibited people to honor His saints…otherwise no version in the bible leterally read that God prohibited the images of our friends,images of Jesus and images of Mama mary…what we read in the bible is God prohibited us the images of an idol,idolatry,worshipping images as god,absolutely that is not the true teaching of the catholic church…thank you and God bless…

How can they celebrated their birthdays during the apostles time,they were persecuted.There are many things happened which are not written in the bible.(St. John 20:30,21:25).After the bible what happened to the apostles..?So the holy Bible is not leterally made by God..Remember no verse in the bible that God prohibited us to honor and commemorate His people events.Marys birthday is not leterraly read in the Bible but the truth is she is like us has a birthday because she is a human being..

It is interesting to see how people appreciate themselves and forget the pain their mothers went through. From the response of Mary during the annunciation we clearly see a woman full of grace, blessed and has pleased God.

Mother Mary is the heart beat of the Catholic Church, a home without a uniting factor is a shamble , we worship God alone, Mother Mary is our mediator, a helper and our support. Continue worshiping Yahweh as u reject the mother and let the Catholics worship Yahweh as they acknowledge the the role played His loving mother.

(146) Erin Pascal says:

Happy Birthday Mother Mary! I prayed for Mother Mary’s intercession and prayer when I was still pregnant of my baby. I almost had a miscarriage and was advised to have complete bed rest. I prayed to God and asked for an intercession from the Mother to pray for me and my baby. Now, my baby is 5 months old, very charming and very bubbly.

Another thing, I asked from a priest regarding the reverence of Catholics to Mother Mary. According to Him, Catholics are honoring our blessed mother because of thanksgiving and adoration of her courage by saying yes to the angel when she was informed that she will bear the son of God. I am not the right person nor am i the person of authority for this but I was told that many misinterpret our reverence to the Mother even fellow Catholics. Mary should not be worshiped. We can ask her to pray for us like we do with our departed loved ones. We can ask her to intercede for us. But we should only worship one God.

Im very thankful to jesus for many blessings, but the biggest blessing we can receive is to have mama Mary as our mother and intercessor. As Catholics we must always defend our beliefs especially when it comes to Mary. Jesus is perfect and therefore, he could not have come from a sinner, that would make him a sinner, therefore, whether people like it or not, Mary could not have been a sinner, lets all be models of Mary and soldiers of Jesus and always defend the only church made by jesus and not men,God bless
