Today, in Mercy, we celebrate the feast of the Immaculate Conception, the belief that Mary was conceived without the mark of Original Sin.

Beyond the intricate theology of the feast, what we treasure is that Mary made a holy place for Christ to dwell.

We pray that, with Mary’s love and guidance, we too may make choices that sanctify our hearts, readying them to receive God.

God will come to us today – not on angel’s word – but in the human form of someone poor, sick, desperate, heart-broken or lonely. May our faith allow us to respond as Mary did.
