Friends of the Rosary:

Today, December 8th, is the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. On this feast, we celebrate with great joy God’s gift to humanity in Mary.

From the very moment of her conception, in the womb of her mother Anne, Mary received the grace of salvation in Christ. She was conceived free from original sin.

The Holy Virgin was granted this extraordinary privilege because of Her unique role in history as the Mother of God.

In 1854, Pope Pius IX’s in the solemn declaration of “Ineffabilis Deus” proclaimed the dogma of the Immaculate Conception.

“The most Blessed Virgin Mary was, from the first moment of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege of almighty God and by virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ, Savior of the human race, preserved immune from all stain of original sin.”

The Church of Christ holds Mary as a model for all humanity in Her holiness and Her purity in her willingness to accept the Plan of God for her.

Mary’s Fiat — “Let it be done to me according to Thy Word,” — in response of the Angel Gabriel’s greeting, is the response required of all Christians to God’s Plan.

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!

To Jesus through Mary!
