The Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Genesis 3:9-9-15, 20, Ps 98, Ephesians1:3-6 & 11-12, Luke 1:26-38

The handmaid of
the Lord

Today we honour the fact that Mary was conceived and born free from Original Sin. This privilege and that of being free from sin all her life was a gift of grace from God. Even though we cannot measure up to her perfection she is still a perfect model for us in how to relate to Jesus. This humble maid of Nazareth is the first believer in Jesus, the first apostle and his most devoted disciple. While honouring Mary today, I ask, how can I more fully imitate Mary’s “Yes” to God?
