Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary


“The angel Gabriel was sent from God to a town of Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin’s name was Mary.  And coming to her, he said, ‘Hail, full of grace!  The Lord is with you.’ ” (Luke 1)

Today, we remember and celebrate the fact, that since she was to be the mother of the Christ, the Messiah, the Son of God; Mary was born without the stain of original sin.  It is the first act, that culminates in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ; and our liberation from the power of sin and death.

One thought on “Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary

  1. Thank you. Only this immaculate womb could possibly contain the Child of Promise. Just like the Ark of the Covenant Mary’s body brought Presence into the world. Only by the cleansing blood of Christ could His Redeemed ever be able to carry His Spirit poured out at Pentecost. The Hope of this world is Christ.
