Both the Eastern and Western churches celebrate the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary on this day. The first reference to the Church celebrating this day is from Pope Sergius in 680. According to tradition, the Virgin Mary’s parents Joachim and Anna were faithful to the Lord, but were looked down upon for not having any children. In a pattern of events clearly modeled upon Hannah and her son Samuel, they vowed that if the Lord gave them a child, they would devote that child to the Lord’s service and take her to the temple at age 3. Within Anglicanism, many different position exist in regard to devotion to Mary. But regardless of where you stand, on this day we praise God for the birth and life of a “new Eve,” who gladly and courageously surrendered to God’s word and believed in the One she would bear in her womb."

This arrangement will allow more people to worship, pray, and receive Holy Communion despite the differences and difficulties presented by the COVID crisis. Please continue to pray for the heath and well-being of our parish and diocese.


Born in Iona in Ireland, Aidan was a monk known for bringing the Gospel to Northumbria. Most of what we know of his life is from the historian Bede who said: “He was one to traverse both town and country on foot, never on horseback, unless compelled by some urgent necessity; and wherever in his way he saw any, either rich or poor, he invited them, if infidels, to embrace the mystery of the faith or if they were believers, to strengthen them in the faith, and to stir them up by words and actions to alms and good works. … This [the reading of scriptures and psalms, and meditation upon holy truths] was the daily employment of himself and all that were with him, wheresoever they went; and if it happened, which was but seldom, that he was invited to eat with the king, he went with one or two clerks, and having taken a small repast, made haste to be gone with them, either to read or write. At that time, many religious men and women, stirred up by his example, adopted the custom of fasting on Wednesdays and Fridays, till the ninth hour, throughout the year, except during the fifty days after Easter. He never gave money to the powerful men of the world, but only meat, if he happened to entertain them; and, on the contrary, whatsoever gifts of money he received from the rich, he either distributed them, as has been said, to the use of the poor, or bestowed them in ransoming such as had been wrong fully sold for slaves. Moreover, he afterwards made many of those he had ransomed his disciples, and after having taught and instructed them, advanced them to the order of priesthood.” He founded a monastery on the island of Lindisfarne which became known as Lindisfarne Priory. He became the bishop there and died in 651, after becoming ill on a missionary journey. He died leaning against the wall of the local church.

Augustine lived from 354-430. He is one of the most important figures of the faith, most notably writing the Confessions and City of God. The child of a believer and an unbeliever, Augustine was trained as an orator and rhetorician.. Before converting to Christianity, he was a Manichaeist (rejecting all knowledge that doesn’t come explicitly through reason and accepting a dualist reality). One day while walking in a garden, he heard a child’s voice say “Tolle, Lege,” which means “Take up and read.” He took this as a word from the Lord to read the Bible and he was immediately struck by Paul’s words in Romans 12 through 15, which describes a Christian’s transformed life. He was baptized by Ambrose, Bishop of Milan, at the Easter Vigil in 387. From that point on, he turned his immense intellect and ardor to the Christian tradition, using his rhetorical skill in service to God. He became the bishop of Hippo and died in 430 AD, while the Vandals besieged his city.

The circumstances of Saint Monica’s life could have made her a nagging wife, a bitter daughter-in-law, and a despairing parent, yet she did not give way to any of these temptations. Although she was a Christian, her parents gave her in marriage to a licentious pagan with a violent temper. Monica’s mother-in-law, also in her home, was hard to deal with. Monica’s prayers and example finally won her husband and mother-in-law to Christianity. Her husband died in 371, one year after his baptism. Monica is known because of her son, St. Augustine. At the time of his father’s death, Augustine was 17 and living an immoral life. Then one night she had a vision that assured her Augustine would return to the faith. From that time on, she stayed close to her son, praying and fasting for him. In fact she often stayed much closer than Augustine wanted. When he was 29, Augustine decided to go to Rome to teach. Monica was determined to go along. He tricked his mother and left without her, but she still followed him. She arrived in Rome only to find that he had left for Milan — she pursued him there. In Milan, Augustine came under the influence of the bishop, Saint Ambrose, who taught Monica, too. Monica became a leader of the devout women in Milan as she had been in North Africa. Monica never stopped praying for Augustine. At Easter, 387, he was baptized by St. Ambrose. Soon after, she knew she was close to death. She told Augustine, “Son, nothing in this world now affords me delight. I do not know what there is now left for me to do or why I am still here, all my hopes in this world being now fulfilled.” She died nine days later.

Born in 1214, the fourth son of King Louis VIII, Louis was crowned King of France at the age of 12 (his elder brothers had all died during his childhood). He married Margaret of Provence, who bore five sons and six daughters and was his strong and loving companion. His life and reign were devoted to God — he prayed the full monastic office every day and night, heard two masses a day, and made confession every Friday. He committed himself to justice and order — outlawing private wars and usury, personally inserting himself into unjust situations. In the midst of splendor and power, he lived austerely, ascetically — it’s said that at one point, he even discussed abdicating the throne in order to become a monk. In 1239, the crown of Thorns was given to France and Louis built the beautiful Sainte-Chapelle to hold it. In 1244, after unexpectedly recovering from serious illness, Louis led a crusade to the Holy Land (the Muslims had just captured Jerusalem) for six years. At one point, he was captured by the Egyptians and while waiting for ransom negotiations, his wife delivered a son and also took command of the French forces in Louis’s place. In 1270, though so weak he could hardly mount a horse, he attempted a second crusade. He died while in Tunis; his remains were carried back to France and twenty-seven years later, Louis was canonized as a saint.

Saint Bartholomew is listed among the Twelve in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. In the Gospel of John, an apostle “Nathanael” is named and because of several marks (i.e. Nathanael/Bartholomew always being grouped with Philip, Bartholomew being a “patronymic” and not a personal name, etc.), Nathanael and Bartholomew have been considered the same person since the 9th century. In the Gospel of John, Jesus called Nathanael “an Israelite worthy of the name” and Nathanael is part of the group who sees Jesus’s appearance on the beach after the resurrection.

Saint Bernard was born to a noble French family in the year 1090. The third of seven children, his mother’s death when he was seventeen plunged him into despair; only his sister Humbeline was able to bring him out of his depression. He entered the Benedictine abbey at Citeaux at the age of 22, along with 31 others whom he had persuaded to join him. After three years, Abbot Stephen of Citeaux sent Bernard with 12 other monks to found a new branch of the monastery , which he eventually named Clairvaux, or “Valley of Light.” As a leader of the reform within Benedictinism at that time, hundreds of monastic houses were founded using his system of rule. Fr. John Julian states that “Saint Bernard of Clairvaux was the single most powerful person in the entire expanse of Western Europe during the first half of the 12th century — more powerful than any king or emperor, any prince or post. Indeed, it has been said of him that Bernard ‘carried the twelfth century on his shoulders!’ ” After a life of extreme asceticism leading to very poor health, he died on this day in 1152.
