Today the Church throughout the world celebrates the incarnation of our Blessed Mother!
She, the mother of Jesus, was born free from sin from the moment of her conception!
That's the essence of our faith in today's feast.
Mary, the mother of Jesus, was predestined from all eternity, to be the vessel to hold and cherish and nurture, our eternal Savior, Jesus.
That's a lot for a teenage girl to handle to contemplate, to even imagine!
But today we celebrarte!
Today's feast happens to be a national feast for our country, as we, the United States of America, are dedicated to the title of Mary, the Immaculate Conception.
Let's take a break from our regular routine today, to celebrate Mary, the Mother of God, and the Mother of the Church. Let's remember that we are not orphans, but we have a loving mother in heaven, and a savior in her Son, Jesus, and that we are all sons and daughters.
Here are some images of Mary, the Immaculate Conception, to help us reflect!:
