September 8 is the feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  There is a novena that began, August 30, and we  have been asked to pray for marriage and families.  A novena is a prayer that lasts for nine successive days and is believed to obtain special intercessory graces.

Heavenly Mother, your birth gave great joy to all the world because it signaled the coming of Jesus Christ, who would save the whole world by His life, death and resurrection.
