Dec. 8, 2017 (Immaculate Conception)

Today’s Feast has nothing to do with the Virgin birth but it honors Mary as the only human (outside Jesus, God Himself) who was never scarred by Original Sin. The conviction that Mary was born without sin is rooted in the angelic greeting we hear in the Gospel: “Hail, full of grace.” Like every Marian Feast, today’s celebration points to God, because it was to God that Mary’s attention was always turned. We need to follow her example.
