September 8.

Your birth, O Virgin Theotokos, heralded joy to the universe; ̇for from you arose the Sun of Justice, Christ our God. Removing the curse, he gave the blessing, and by destroying Death, he granted us eternal life.
Troparion of the Nativity of the Theotokos

Luke 10:38-42 – Now as they went on their way, [Jesus] entered a village; and a woman named Martha received him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to his teaching. But Martha was distracted with much serving; and she went to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things; one thing is needful. Mary has chosen the good portion, which shall not be taken away from her.” (RSV)
