The Gifts Of The Blessed Virgin Mary

Immaculate Conception 2017

The brightness of this feast honoring the Immaculate Conception is seen in stark contrast to the darkness of those who should know the truths of the Faith and do not.  Our Lady received her initial plenitude of grace today and all the gifts which accompany it.  Her humility is prominent among them and was singular in her becoming the Mother of God. This was to undo the terrible pride which led to the sin of Adam and Eve.  Finally, the tremendous value of sanctifying grace is seen by the fact that it cost the Blood of God to obtain it.
