Right from the start Mary would have known the sting of reality.
Today, September 8, is commemorated as the Birthday of Mary since, of course, it is exactly nine months after her Immaculate Conception on December 8.
From Psalm 44 (slightly retranslated for accuracy vs NAB):
Hearken, O daughter, and see, and incline thy ear: and forget thy people and thy father’s house. And the king shall single out thy beauty; for he is the Lord thy God, and him they shall adore. And the daughters of Tyre with gifts, yea, all the rich among the people, shall entreat thy countenance. All the glory of the king’s daughter is within in golden borders, clothed round about with varieties. After her shall virgins be brought to the king: her neighbors shall be brought to thee. They shall be brought with gladness and rejoicing: they shall be brought into the temple of the king. Instead of thy fathers, sons are born to thee: thou shalt make them princes over all the earth. They shall remember thy name throughout all generations. Therefore shall people praise thee for ever; yea, for ever and ever.
