Birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary

"The Blessed Virgin is called ‘the Morning Star’ because the morning of grace has dawned in her, and she is ‘among the clouds’, which usually rise in the morning. The cloud that the Blessed Virgin scatters is threefold, namely, the cloud of sin, the cloud of sorrow and the cloud of error. The first she scatters by interceding for sinners, the second by pouring out consolation on those who suffer, and the third by revealing the truth." – St Albert the Great OP. Today is the feast of the birth of Our Lady, and this stained glass image depicting this happy event is a medieval window from the Burrell Collection in Glasgow.
