The Immaculate Conception of The Blessed Virgin Mary – Solemnity
December 8

Today’s Feast reminds us of the Church’s teaching that the Virgin Mary was conceived without the stain of original sin, this was a special and fitting honour bestowed on the one who would give birth to the Saviour. Mary still had to walk by faith through life and ponder the ways of God in her heart. She had to give her ‘yes’ to God without knowing fully what her ‘yes’ would entail. She models discipleship for us all.
