Why is the Bris Milah performed on the eighth day?


Maharal (Tif'eres Yisrael Ch. 2, p. 10): The natural world was created in seven days, and a person in his original natural state was created with the deficiency of an Orlah. The Milah, a rectification of nature, is therefore done on the eighth day. 1
