(Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary)
Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord.
May it be done to me according to your word.” Lk 1:26-38
This is Mary’s fiat – her total submission to the will of God in her life.
And with that submission we have a Messiah, a savior. Praise God for giving us Mary.
Of course the Immaculate Conception is not the conception of Jesus, but the conception of Mary, sinless and pure. Today we celebrate that conception.
