Feast of the Nativity of Mary

Today we celebrate the Feast of the Nativity of Mary. As Vincentians, we have a devotion to Mary thanks to our founder Blessed Frederic Ozanam insisting she become our Society’s patroness. Frederic Ozanam had a strong devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, from his youth to his death. Frederic was insistent that the Society take Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception as its patroness. Fittingly, today also marks the day Blessed Frederic Ozanam left this world in 1853. Let’s take a moment to remember both Our Lord’s mother and Blessed Frederic Ozanam today.
