A September birth was chosen because the Eastern Church begins its Church year with September. The September 8 date helped determine the date for the feast of the Immaculate Conception on December 8. Scripture does not give an account of Mary s birth. However, the apocryphal Protoevangelium of James fills in the gap. This work has no historical value, but it does reflect the development of Christian piety. According to this account, Anna and Joachim are infertile but pray for a child. They receive the promise of a child who will advance God s plan of salvation for the world. Such a story, like many biblical counterparts, stresses the special presence of God in Mary s life from the beginning. Saint Augustine connects Mary s birth with Jesus saving work. He tells the earth to rejoice and shine forth in the light of her birth. She is the flower of the field from whom bloomed the precious lily of the valley. Through her birth the nature inherited from our first parents is changed. The opening prayer at Mass speaks of the birth of Mary s Son as the dawn of our salvation, and asks for an increase of peace. We can see every human birth as a call for new hope in the world. The love of two human beings has joined with God in his creative work. The loving parents have shown hope in a world filled with travail. The new child has the potential to be a channel of God s love and peace to the world. This is all true in a magnificent way in Mary. If Jesus is the perfect expression of God s love, Mary is the foreshadowing of that love. If Jesus has brought the fullness of salvation, Mary is its dawning. Birthday celebrations bring happiness to the celebrant as well as to family and friends. Next to the birth of Jesus, Mary s birth offers the greatest possible happiness to the world. Each time we celebrate her birth, we can confidently hope for an increase of peace in our hearts and in the world at large.

5 8 settembre Natività Della Beata Vergine Maria La liturgia ci fa chiedere a Dio che la festa della natività della Madonna ci faccia crescere nella pace. Ed è effettivamente una festa che deve aumentare la pace in noi, perché ci parla dell amore di Dio verso di noi. La nascita di Maria è il segno che Dio ha preparato per noi la salvezza: per questo ha preparato il corpo e l anima della madre di Gesù, che è anche madre nostra. San Paolo nella lettera ai Romani scrive: Quelli che egli da sempre ha conosciuto li ha anche predestinati ad essere conformi all immagine del Figlio suo (8,29). Questo è particolarmente vero per la Vergine santa, predestinata ad essere conforme all immagine del Figlio di Dio e figlio suo. E Dio ha predisposto tutte le cose secondo questa intenzione: Sappiamo che tutto concorre al bene di coloro che amano Dio, troviamo poco prima nella stessa lettera. Dio ha preparato tutte le generazioni umane in vista della nascita di Maria, in vista della nascita di Gesù, e insieme ha agito con mezzi soprannaturali. E nel Vangelo di oggi si può dire che appaiono sia la parte naturale che quella soprannaturale, l una e l altra necessarie per la nascita di Maria. Questa lunga serie di generazioni, così monotone alla lettura, è in realtà come la sintesi di una storia vivente, spesso anche di peccatori, che è stata condotta da Dio verso la nascita di Maria e di Gesù. Alla fine però il disegno di Dio si è realizzato con mezzi straordinari, sconcertanti: Giuseppe non capisce ciò che succede, perché avviene per opera dello Spirito Santo. Non bastano dunque le generazioni umane che si succedono nel tempo per il compimento del progetto di Dio: è necessario l intervento dello Spirito Santo. Tutto dunque ci parla dell amore di Dio: amore di Dio creatore, amore di Dio salvatore. Oggi dobbiamo, più di sempre, dire a Dio la nostra riconoscenza, la nostra gioia perché egli ha amato Maria e ci ha amati. RUCH RODZIN NAZARE- TAŃSKICH Jest to międzynarodowy katolicki ruch apostolstwa rodzin, którego celem jest uświęcenie członków poprzez pogłębienie życia Ewangelią w oparciu o wspólnotę życia z Chrystusem w codzienności, naśladując Maryję. Jeżeli pragniesz włączyć się w to dzieło, chcesz pogłębić swoje życie duchowe i wiarę zapraszamy na spotkania w poniedziałek o 7:00 PM (od 17 września 2018) w górnej salce w centrum parafialnym. Spotkania poprowadzi ks Łukasz Kleczka SDS 8 wrzesień Narodzenie Najświętszej Maryi Panny Pismo Święte nigdzie nie wspomina o narodzinach Maryi. Tradycja jednak przekazuje, że Jej rodzicami byli św. Anna i św. Joachim. Byli oni pobożnymi Żydami. Mimo sędziwego wieku nie mieli dziecka. W tamtych czasach uważane to było za karę za grzechy przodków. Dlatego Anna i Joachim gorliwie prosili Boga o dziecko. Bóg wysłuchał ich próśb i w nagrodę za pokładaną w Nim bezgraniczną ufność sprawił, że Anna urodziła córkę, Maryję. Nie znamy miejsca urodzenia Maryi ani też daty Jej przyjścia na ziemię. Według wszelkich dostępnych nam informacji, Maryja przyszła na świat pomiędzy 20. a 16. rokiem przed narodzeniem Pana Jezusa. Dzisiejsze święto przypomina nam, że Maryja była zwykłym człowiekiem. Choć zachowana od zepsucia grzechu, przez całe życie posiadała wolną wolę, nie była do niczego zdeterminowana. Tak jak każdy z nas miała swoich rodziców, rosła, bawiła się, pomagała w prowadzeniu domu, miała swoich znajomych i krewnych. Dopiero Jej zaufanie, posłuszeństwo i pełna zawierzenia odpowiedź na Boży głos sprawiły, że "będą Ją chwalić wszystkie pokolenia".
