brings everyone into eternity

Solemn Feast of the Nativity
of the Blessed Virgin Mary
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
Dear faithful, Mary is! On this day we honour and celebrate Mary in a solemn way by commemorating the day of Her birth. The Universal Christian Church of the New Jerusalem has decreed the day of Mary’s nativity to be a solemn feast day of Christianity, wanting to give Mary the honour due to Her since the day of Her birth.
On the day Mary was born, the whole creation exulted with joy. Heaven already knew Her, the Full of Grace. Mary was in the Father’s thoughts before time was. The Father generated Mary in His Heart before time was, so to preserve Mary from original sin. She who would have received the Saviour into Her Womb, could not have been stained by any sin, and so the Father, in His infinite Love, betimes preserved Mary from sin that entered into time, filling Mary with His Grace so that She might worthily receive the Saint of saints, the King of kings, the Lord of lords, the Son of the living God, the Only-begotten of the Holy Spirit.
That Spirit who is Holy and who proceeds from the Father and from the Son, has flooded Mary with His infinite Love, in a jubilation of love, in which the Creator leaned down over His Creature calling Her to be first Daughter, then Bride and then Mother, in a Trinitarian interweaving of Love that is unfathomable to the rational human logic but is totally alive in those who, having unclothed themselves of their humanity and allowing themselves to be clothed by the Light that is Christ, have chosen to be reborn from Above, in the Spirit, in Christ and in Mary.
Here is the feast of Mary’s sons who today honour the nativity of She who is Mother of the Most High and Mother of us all.
Today, we give thanks to the Father for the day on which, sixteen years before the year zero, the little Mary uttered her first cry, opening her little eyes and letting the beating of Her little Heart be heard by Anne and Joachim, who, after so much waiting, after so much praying but never failing in the hope for the answer of God to their prayer, thanked the Lord for having granted them the Grace of giving birth to She who the Most High covered with His shadow, filling Her with His Grace and His Power.
Mary, the Full of Grace, is She who made herself be the Tabernacle of the Holy Spirit, that is Love, Love made Flesh. Before Her, the Angels and Saints of Heaven and of Earth bow down in reverence. She is at the head of the Heavenly Militias. She leads and will lead God’s sons to the final victory. She lives to lead everyone to Her Son. Mary, united with Her Son, has the power to save the sons who entrust themselves to Her with a sincere heart. Mary, the Immaculate of the Holy Spirit. Mary, the Ever Virgin. Mary, the Universal Mother. Mary, the Queen of Heaven and Earth, Assumed into Heaven. Mary, the Universal Coredemptrix.
Praise and honour to You, Mary, Holy Mother.
Thanks and praise to You, Heavenly Father, for having given us a Mother, the Virgin Mary, whom You have entrusted to us, as our Mother, so that all of us may consider Her not only as Queen, but as Mother, Universal Mother, Mother of all the living beings, of those who unceasingly live in God, for God and with God, for having consecrated their lives to Christ, the King of kings and Lord of lords, He who lives and will reign with Mary for ever and ever, amen.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
