Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Happy Feast of the Birth of Our Blessed Mother.
So far as I know the Church only celebrates 3 births (everyone else is it generally their death that is celebrated). We celebrate Our Lord of course on Christmas and Our Lady, today, September 8, both of course who were conceived without sin. We also celebrate the Birth of St. John the Baptist who was purified in the womb of his mother during the Visitation, when Mary visited Elizabeth.
