September 8: Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Lord, you brought Mary to us, unstained and sinless throughout her days so that trough her we may come to know our salvation, through our Savior, Jesus Christ. This feast day, humble me to offer myself to Mary's consecration and thank her for her humbling "Yes". That I may be ever so willing to accept all that You command, no matter the situation or consequence. Amen!
