The Immaculate Conception

Today is the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. May everyone enjoy this blessed solemnity by imitating the holiness of the Blessed Virgin Mary. While we do not share this feast in common with most other Christians, we do share a basic understanding of Mary’s sinlessness with the East, and a strong veneration of Mary with many high-church Protestants. May this be a start of unity!
