Octave Day of the Nativity of our Lord

January 1, 2016

Today’s liturgy celebrates three feasts in one. The first is the Octave of the Lord. Formerly a second Mass was celebrated at St. Maria Antiqua, in the forum, whose dedication it possibly was. Traces of this are to be found in the Mass and Office which are devoted to Our Lady. The third feast is that of the Circumcision which has been celebrated since the sixth century. Eight days after His birth Christ underwent, like all the Jews, this rite enjoined on Abraham by God as a pledge of his faith, and He received the name of Jesus.
