Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Here is the entry in the Roman Martyrology for today’s feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  Translation follows:

Festum Nativitatis beatae Mariae Virginis, ex semine Abrahae, de tribu Iuda ortae, ex progenie regis David, e qua Filius Dei natus est, factus homo de Spiritu Sancto, ut homines vetusta servitute peccati liberaret.

The Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, from the sead of Abraham, sprung from the tribe of Judah, from the line of King David, from whom the Son of God was born, made man by the Holy Spirit, so that men might be freed from the age old servitude of sin.
