Feast of the Immaculate Conception

Mary2_2 Mary was destined for great things.

She was only a teenager of 16 years when the Archangel Gabriel came and told her of God’s plan. Her reply was simple: “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word.” (Luke 1:38). Though she may have rare appearances in the Gospels, Mary was the woman behind that great man. At the wedding feast of Cana (John 2:3-5), it was through her intercession that Jesus performed his first miracle of turning water into wine. And she was there at the cross when her son was crucified. How terrible it must have been for a mother to see her son, her “flesh and blood” being tortured, mocked and killed! Just because of a simple “yes”, she endured such pain and heartache. Her sacrifice of love saved us all, for if it was not for her, our salvation would not be realized.

This great woman was conceived without original sin, the only person conceived as such, tomorrow, December 8. As I said last year, let’s go to Church?
