Just so's you know...
Am Tage der Geburt Mariä.
On the day of the Birth of Mary.
The readings assigned are an epistle from Sirach 24:22-31 and the Gospel is Matthew 1:1-16. Although the day did NOT make it into LSB's commemorations (sadly!), I do note that in Liturgies et Cantiques Lutheriens (think French LSB), the day is listed. The propers include:
Isaiah 61:7-11; Gal. 4:4-7; Luke 1:(39-45) 46-55.
The collect appears to be the same one that LSB prescribes for the Day of St. Mary, August 15.
So there is both Lutheran precedent and current Lutheran practice observing today as the Nativity of the Blessed Mother.
