Thoughts on Today's Feast

Today is the feast day of the Immaculate Conception.  I don't know much, I have really only scratched the surface of the blessed mother's awesomeness.  Last night in class, Deacon Mike told us that Mary said "I AM the immaculate conception".  That was pretty deep for people in those times.  Just that sentence alone can give you a feast of thought that would last a lifetime.  For me, I like to focus on the mother aspect of Mary, being a mother myself.  Once you have a child, you know what a miracle it really is.  Deacon Mike also said that most catholics don't know what this day is about.  It's not truly about her conceiving Jesus, but actually her saying "yes" to god, and therefore the focus is on her being exempt of original sin.  She is the perfect embodiment of the mother, and the perfect vessel for the son of god, our lord Jesus.  It's a lot to think about and today is the perfect day to research and reflect on it.


  1. There is SOOO much to learn about the Faith, so don't be discouraged. And, sad to say, you will more likely than not end up knowing the Faith better than a lot of cradle Catholics (myself included I'm sure) because you had the initiative to find out for yourself. May God continue to bless you with courage and curiosity!


  2. Blessing to you on your journey through the Catholic faith :)I will keep you in my prayers. Celeste
