The creation of Mama MaryBy Marc • Dec 8th, 2005 • Category: Catholic stuff, the Church
Today we celebrate the feast day of the Immaculate Conception. This does not celebrate the conception of our Lord as some people mistakenly think it does. It celebrates the conception of His mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary. What is mean by Immaculate is that her conception was made pure by God so that she was conceived without the stain of original sin. Through this immaculate conception, she managed to remain sinless throughout her life, in order to serve as the ark of the New Covenant, that vessel through which God would become man and come to us as a our Saviour. For this service Mary provided for us, we should always be eternally grateful and fulfill the words she spoke when she said, “All generations shall called me blessed.”
For my fellow Roman Catholics out there, I want to humbly remind you of your obligation to attend Mass today to give thanks to the Heavenly Father for giving us such a wonderful gift in our spiritual mother. For my fellow Christians who are not of the Catholic persuasion, I ask that you prayerfully meditate on Mama Mary’s role in salvation history. Come to know your mother and know that she humbly serves us in the Heavenly Kingdom.
