Today we celebrate the Nativity of the Most Holy Lady Theotokos and Ever-Virgin Mary!

Saint Fadei described this wonderful event as follows: "The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin is the beginning of salvation history. It is not yet the Lord Himself, who is the Saviour of the world, that is born, but His Most Blessed Mother, not the Sun of the world itself is rising, but only the pre-dawn time is coming, as if the morning wind brings the good news of the soon sunrise to all the ends of the world."

On this day, we glorify You, the Most Holy Virgin, and honour your saint parents, and glorify your birth.
