TradCatKnight: Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Included is the Novena to the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary... The earliest document commemorating this feast comes from the sixth century. St. Romanus, the great ecclesiastical lyrist of the Greek Church, composed for it a hymn (Card. Pitra, "Hymnogr. Graeca", Paris, 1876, 199) which is a poetical sketch of the apocryphal Gospel of St. James.
