Ave Maria Meditations

September 8: Feast of the Nativity of Mary


Radiant Dawn of our salvation,

Hope of life for all the earth!

Now we sing God’s new creation

On this day of such a birth.

 

Virgin, thou art filled with beauty;

Spot and stain are not in thee.

God has made thee perfect duly

For thy Son’s divinity.

 

Cry, O Blessed, to high heaven;

Sing our praise, O Spotless One!

We, thy children, are forgiven

Through thy Maker, Lord, and Son.

 

God has looked on thee with favor;

Generations this acclaim.

We rejoice in God thy Savior,

For with thee we praise his Name.

Our Lady found this unworthy lukewarm person and obtained for her the grace to enter the Third Order of the Franciscans of the Immaculate. May this person spend all eternity in showing her gratitude.
