September 8, 2014 (Nativity of Mary)

Liturgically speaking, we celebrate few birthdays (Jesus is the primary exception to this rule but also John the Baptist). We honor Mary yet the focal point of this Feast is Jesus’ birthday. Mary’s birth begins the process of winning our salvation, salvation won through the death and resurrection of Jesus. Jesus gets His humanity through Mary. Therefore, Mary assists in gaining our salvation.
