Nativity of Mary

The source that firstly tells the event is the so-called Gospel of James, according to which Mary was born in Jerusalem in the house of Joachim and Anna. The birth of Mary throws a subtle and penetrating ray of light in the history of humanity; a beam that will expand up to illuminate the universe. Through her, conceived without original sin, God’s original plan returns on the scene of the world: the creation of mankind in His image and likeness, without any trace of sin, in perfect communion with his Creator. Mary fully expresses the mystery of human life conceived, loved, wanted by God for a life and a destiny of beauty and perfect eternal happiness, which for Mary culminates in her Assumption into Heaven in body and soul. Mary’s birth marks the beginning of the redemption through the Incarnation of the Word of God; a mystery in which Mary is associated since its conception.
