Happy Feast of the Immaculate Conception!

Happy Feast of the Immaculate Conception!

From the Catholic Education Resource Center (CERC)

Why do Catholics believe in the Immaculate Conception? The belief means that Mary, the mother of Jesus, was preserved without sin for her entire life. Read answers to the issues raised by this doctrine here

      I wish everyone at CTS the happiest of feasts today.

      The explanation at the Catholic Education Center was very helpful in helping us to explain this doctrine to non-Catholics. It shows the part played by Tradition in the faith as well as Scripture.

      Happy Feast!

        I agree – that American resource center is very good. I think I’m right in saying that today is a holiday in Italy, for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, so they’re clinging on by a thread to the faith!

    This is my favourite hymn to Our Lady although most of the verses are missing, they sing the same few verses twice, for some unfathomable reason, LOL!

      I’ve tried to get that YouTube link to open out for you, but it just won’t obey my instructions!

      I’ll Sing a Hymn to Mary is also one of my own favourites but, sorry, not that version – the jazzy bits in between verses drives me nuts! Still, lovely words, so thank you for posting.

      Since nobody has posted a joke, however, here’s one that made me laugh… Why is it appropriate for this Feast? Because there is a lesson there for us all about the importance of NOT being materialistic… 😀
