12-08-18 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

December 8, 2018
(Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary)
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

The Holiness of God simply cannot dwell within unholiness.  Thus, in time, when God chose Mary to be that dwelling place for His Son, she was conceived in pure holiness.  She was conceived devoid of the effect of that sin of our first parents, which we all “inherit.” Mary IS the Immaculate Conception, the pure ark, the dwelling place of God, the Mother of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord.
May it be done to me according to your word.”

Some years later Jesus fell prostrate in prayer, saying, “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from me; yet, not as I will, but as you will.”  Mt_26:39

It’s God’s will, beloved.  The best we can do every day is to keep these dwelling places of ours as holy, as pure as we possibly can.  That we make a place for Him within our hearts to dwell.  And that we understand – It is God’s will that we be so blessed – and who are we to argue!
