HERALD OF JOY


Your Nativity, O Virgin Mother of God, was the herald of joy to the whole world; since from you arose the Sun of Justice.

- Antiphon for the feast of Mary’s Nativity

NATIVITY 

Behold, this is the feast of the Nativity of the Virgin and of the renewal of the human race! The Virgin is born, She groweth and is raised up and prepareth Herself to be the Mother of God All-Sovereign of the ages.

- St Andrew, Archbishop of Crete 

LAUGH AND SING 

Let our land laugh and sing with merriment, bathed in the glory of this great Virgin’s rising. She is the flower of the fields on which the priceless lily of the valleys hath blossomed.

- St Augustine on the Nativity of Mary
