A day of particular recognition of the role of Mary in the gospel events, celebrating her title as "Mother of God," which since the 5th century summarizes and affirms the conviction that Jesus is truly both God and born of a woman. Catholics celebrating Mary, Mother of God often attend Mass this day, and some students or employees may request scheduling accommodations in order to observe.
