Mother Mary's birthday and Oriental Churches
« on: August 16, 2005, 11:59:40 PM »
Whether any Oriental Orthadox church is giving Impotance to Mother mary's birthday on Septemper 8th. It is seen that In india both MOSC(indian orthadox) and JSC( a part of SOC) are celebrating this with great fanfare. Also there is a 8 day lent ending on Semptember8th. Also It is seen that in all these 8 days Holy Mass is conducted in most of the churches as part of the lent.
What is the canonical position of these?
Thanks
