(Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception)
Then the LORD God said to the serpent: “. . . I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will strike at your head, while you strike at his heel.” Gn_3:9-15, 20
The battle lost by the serpent by the wood of a cross.
Thank you Jesus. Thank you Mary – for saying Yes to God.
St. Paul wrote, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavens, as he chose us in him, before the foundation of the world, to be holy and without blemish before him.” Eph_1:3-6,11-12
Chosen! That’s us!
Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord.
May it be done to me according to your word.” Lk_1:26-38
