Feast of The Nativity of Our Lady – Enjoy!

Feast of The Nativity of Our Lady – Enjoy!

Ave Maria, gratia plena,
Hail Mary, full of grace
Dominus, tecum,
The Lord is with thee
Benedicta tu in mulieribus
Blessed art thou among women
Et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Iesus.
And blessed is the fruit of thy  womb, Jesus.
Sancta Maria, Mater Dei,
Holy Mary, mother of God
ora pro nobis, peccatoribus,
pray  for us, sinners,
Nunc et in hora mortis nostrae.
now and at the hour of our death

As with all Feast Day threads, discuss any relevant issues, share your favourite hymns, books, prayers and prayer-requests, and – as ever – your best jokes, of the good clean fun variety!  Enjoy celebrating, as we wish Our Lady a very Happy Birthday!

Here’s a conversation I have when my birthday comes around (fake date below)…

“When’s your birthday?”
“June 2nd.”
“What year?”
“Every year!”

    Some quotes from saints on the Feast of Our Lady’s Nativity…

    And here’s an interesting story about a young man, John, who was puzzled that his girlfriend stopped speaking to him. He told a friend he couldn’t understand it, especially when she told him the reason. She was livid with him because, she said, he’d spoiled her birthday. John was astonished saying “I didn’t even know it was her birthday!”

    Happy Feast, folks!

    Happy Feast to all. A great birthday present for Our Lady would be an extra rosary!

      I love that hymn. I also love “I’ll Sing a Hymn to Mary” so I’ll try to find it and post it at some point today.

    Happy Feast – today would be a good day to pray extra hard for the Consecration of Russia – that would be a great birthday present for Our Lady.

    Yes, today would be a good day to pray extra hard for the Consecration of Russia, a good birthday present indeed for Our Lady.

    A favourite hymn of mine is the Salve Regina. A prayer and hymn combined.

    I said I would post I’ll Sing a Hymn to Mary, and I’ve come back to do just that. This is a version where they sing the verses twice, for some reason, and I’m not sure they’ve sung all the verses, but it’s sweet, just the same. I like it.

    Love all the hymns and comments today for the Feast. I can’t find any of my favourite hymns on YouTube on a quick search, but here’s a birthday joke that made me laugh…

    When I was ten my Mom told me to take my brother to a movie so she could set up for his surprise birthday party. That’s when I realized that he was her favourite twin.

    Happy Feast (again!)
