It's a day full of grace as we celebrate Mary's pure conception in St. Anne's womb. Conceived without sin, Mary was God's gift to the universe. It is she who who leads all of us closer to her Son, if only we look for her graceful guidance. I am especially grateful to celebrate this holy day whereas God's favor was given to us, even when we have least deserved it.
Mary is the gift that keeps on giving:)
I couldn't resist this beautiful creation by Trendy Traditions!
It is my deepest prayer that my children always stay close to Our Lady. Through their life's inevitable trials, she will always be a sure ticket to the Savior.
"Mother of all mothers" (love that:), please pray for us!
