Because time itself is like a spiral, something special happens on your birthday each year: The same energy that God invested in you at birth is present once again. ~Menachem Mendel Schneerson

The birthday of Mary (Sep 8th) is celebrated today. We don't know for certain when she was born but for some reason Sep 8th is the day that marks her birthday. Every birthday is worthy of celebration and even more so when it comes to Mary. As the mother of God she is hugely popular. It is estimated that her prayer, "Hail Mary" is said two billion times every day across the world. We look forward to our own birthday and that of family and friends. No one grows tired of saying Happy Birthday. Every birthday is our way of saying, "You are special, there's only one of you, we are happy that you exist." Today is our way of saying to Mary that we are happy that she has an important part to play in our lives. We invite her nurturing presence and compassionate love into all we do each day. Today is also a reminder to acknowledge those who are special to us and that we don't just do it every year on their birthday but every day till their birthday!
