December 8th is her Feast Day ~ All over the world.

Holy Day of Obligation ~ in the countries, that she is Patroness of.

Mary was conceived without sin, in the womb of her mother St Anne at the moment of her Immaculate Conception. Her father was St Joachim. Yet, Jesus being both God and in time Man, wanted His Mother to be given the “Singular Privilege” of being “FREE FROM ALL SIN” so that Jesus could redeem us, by His Most Precious, Unblemished Blood. Thus this fulfills the Promises God made to Adam and Eve in Genesis 3:15 and to the Israelites, that God would “PROVIDE THE LAMB.” 

Let us pray:  “Oh Mary, Conceived Without Sin, Pray for us, who have recourse to Thee.”
