Quick Thoughts on the Immaculate Conception

Immaculate Conception
 by Jusepe de Ribera
Mary, Full of Grace, pray for us who have recourse to thee!

A great tract on why Catholics believe Mary was conceived without original sin can be found here.

We don't have any big plans for the day.  We went to Mass last night and I was so moved by the readings and prayers chosen.  I suppose much of it has to do with expecting to give birth any day now.  The boys got a special blueberry muffin treat with breakfast (yay for freezers...had nothing planned but found those in there) and for dinner we will have our 'white dinner' in honor of Mary's purity.  No lessons for today and the boys are busy crafting Christmas gifts.  And not that I have a one-track mind lately, but wouldn't it be cool to have a baby on day like today?  Just sayin...
