Feast of the Immaculate Conception


Since I am a Catholic and want to share my faith on my blog as well as other things and want to wish you all a blessed Feast day of the Immaculate Conception


A feast called the Conception of Mary arose in the Eastern Church in the seventh century. It came to the West in the eighth century. In the eleventh century it received its present name, the Immaculate Conception. In the eighteenth century it became a feast of the universal Church.
In 1854 Pius IX gave the infallible statement: “The most Blessed Virgin Mary, in the first instant of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege granted by almighty God, in view of the merits of Jesus Christ, the savior of the human race, was preserved free from all stain of original sin.”

Father, You prepared the Virgin Mary to be the worthy Mother of Your Son. You made it possible for her to share beforehand in the salvation Your Son, Jesus Christ, would bring by His death, and kept her without sin from the first moment of her conception. Give us the grace by her prayers ever to live in Your presence without sin. We ask this through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Yes, happy feast day to you. I'm not sure I understand the concept of "immaculate conception" enough to comment upon it but I've often observed that we protestants tend to minimize Mary's role in God's plan. (So as to avoid appearing too Catholic I suppose:) That's a pity because, without Mary, there would have been no Jesus and that would leave us all in deep dookie... Sorry, I hope that's not too offensive:)

You certainly get a lot of Feasts as a Catholic, and I hope the celebration goes well for you.

As for your previous post, the dresses look sharp & so do the pics.

St.Peters,
Same to you!

Art,
It's ok not to understand the full concept of it, it's hard enough to understand the full concept of what God has done for us too. No that's not offensive at all! That's less offensive than my cartoon :D

Photo-effe,
Spero che hai un bella giornata oggi per la festa.

2dollar,
We sure do, we are a bunch of feasting folks :0
