Liturgical Notes on Sept 8, 2013
From the Liturgical Committee: September 8 is the Feast of the birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary and it falls on a Sunday. Please be reminded that Sunday of Ordinary time takes precedence over the feasts of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Saints. Therefore, all masses on Sept. 8 will take the 23rd Sunday liturgy and the the liturgy of the feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
We may just add in our homily a short liturgical catechesis on the Birth of Mary. Any rite like special prayer, flower offering, etc., in her honor can be done after the post communion prayer.
Happy Birthday, Blessed Virgin Mary!
