Solemnity of Mary, the Holy Mother of God, the Octave Day of the Nativity of the Lord, Holy Day of Obligation

See in her the pattern of your life, for in her, as though in a model, manifest teachings of goodness show what you should correct, what you should copy, and what [you should] preserve. … For such was Mary that her life alone suffices for the instruction of all.

— St. Ambrose
