Happy Birthday To Our Blessed Virgin Mary- Feast Of Immaculate Conception by Nobody: 5:35am On Dec 09, 2013


The Immaculate Conception is a dogma of the Catholic
Church maintaining that from the moment when she was
conceived in the womb, the Blessed Virgin Mary was kept free
of original sin, so that she was from the start filled with
the sanctifying grace normally conferred in baptism . It is one
of the four dogmas in Roman Catholic Mariology.
The doctrine of the immaculate conception of Mary concerns
her mother's conception of her, not Mary's conception of Jesus
(the virgin birth of Jesus) nor the perpetual virginity of Mary.
Although the belief that Mary was conceived immaculate was
widely held since at least Late Antiquity , the doctrine was not
dogmatically defined until December 8, 1854, by Pope Pius IX
in his papal bull Ineffabilis Deus. It is not formal doctrine
except in the Roman Catholic Church. The Feast of the
Immaculate Conception is observed on December 8 in many
Catholic countries as a holy day of obligation or patronal feast ,
and in some as a national public holiday.......

First reading
Genesis 3:9-15,20 ©
After Adam had eaten of the tree the Lord
God called to him. ‘Where are you?’ he
asked. ‘I heard the sound of you in the
garden;’ he replied ‘I was afraid because I
was naked, so I hid.’ ‘Who told you that
you were naked?’ he asked ‘Have you
been eating of the tree I forbade you to
eat?’ The man replied, ‘It was the woman
you put with me; she gave me the fruit,
and I ate it.’ Then the Lord God asked the
woman, ‘What is this you have done?’ The
woman replied, ‘The serpent tempted me
and I ate.’
Then the Lord God said to the serpent,
‘Because you have done this,
‘Be accursed beyond all cattle,
all wild beasts.
You shall crawl on your belly and eat dust
every day of your life.
I will make you enemies of each other:
you and the woman,
your offspring and her offspring.
It will crush your head
and you will strike its heel.’
The man named his wife ‘Eve’ because she
was the mother of all those who live.

Ephesians 1:3-6,11-12 ©
Blessed be God the Father of our Lord Jesus
Christ,
who has blessed us with all the spiritual
blessings of heaven in Christ.
Before the world was made, he chose us,
chose us in Christ,
to be holy and spotless, and to live through
love in his presence,
determining that we should become his
adopted sons, through Jesus Christ
for his own kind purposes,
to make us praise the glory of his grace,
his free gift to us in the Beloved,
And it is in him that we were claimed as
God’s own,
chosen from the beginning,
under the predetermined plan of the one
who guides all things
as he decides by his own will;
chosen to be,
for his greater glory,
the people who would put their hopes in
Christ before he came.

Gospel Acclamation cf.Lk1:28
Alleluia, alleluia!
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with
thee!
Blessed art thou among women.
Alleluia!

Gospel Luke 1:26-38 ©
The angel Gabriel was sent by God to a
town in Galilee called Nazareth, to a
virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph,
of the House of David; and the virgin’s
name was Mary. He went in and said to
her, ‘Rejoice, so highly favoured! The Lord
is with you.’ She was deeply disturbed by
these words and asked herself what this
greeting could mean, but the angel said to
her, ‘Mary, do not be afraid; you have
won God’s favour. Listen! You are to
conceive and bear a son, and you must
name him Jesus. He will be great and will
be called Son of the Most High. The Lord
God will give him the throne of his
ancestor David; he will rule over the House
of Jacob for ever and his reign will have
no end.’ Mary said to the angel, ‘But how
can this come about, since I am a virgin?’
‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you’ the
angel answered ‘and the power of the Most
High will cover you with its shadow. And
so the child will be holy and will be called
Son of God. Know this too: your
kinswoman Elizabeth has, in her old age,
herself conceived a son, and she whom
people called barren is now in her sixth
month, for nothing is impossible to God’ ‘I
am the handmaid of the Lord,’ said Mary
‘let what you have said be done to me.’
And the angel left her.[/b]

MEDITATION:
The Immaculate Conception of
the Blessed Virgin Mary

May it be done to me according
to your word. (Luke 1:38)


Imagine the setting: a pure,
virginal young woman is
presented with a choice from
God. Will she obey, or will she
choose her own way? In the
pristine beauty of the Garden of
Eden, Eve chose to disobey God,
and with her choice, sin entered
the world. In Nazareth, Mary
chose to obey. With her “yes” to
God, she became the new Eve
and began the undoing of Eve’s
disobedience, ushering in God’s
grace and redemption. Her yes
reversed Eve’s no.
Choices. Each of us is presented
with a myriad of choices
throughout the day. They can
bring grace into the world, or
they can bring discord. Of
course, we don’t have the
benefit of being born without
original sin, like Mary. But we
are redeemed! When we were
baptized, we were cleansed of
original sin. Through Christ we
have also been blessed with
“every spiritual blessing in the
heavens” (Ephesians 1:3). So we
have all the resources we need
to make the right choices.
As Mary did, so can we do. In
each yes or no we choose, we
can bring forth grace into our
lives and the lives of those
around us, or we can allow sin
to damage us. Will we mess up,
and will we say no sometimes?
Of course. But that doesn’t
mean we should give up! If we
say no or if we fail even to see
the choice in the first place, we
can still receive God’s
forgiveness and restoration. God
will always give us another
chance. And with every yes that
we say to him, his Spirit will
strengthen us further for the
next choice. And the next one.
And the next one.
Maybe the “angel” who presents
you with a choice today will
come disguised as a co-worker
or as a child asking for your
help in the middle of a busy
day. Maybe the angel will wear
the distressing disguise of the
poor or a disagreeable neighbor.
Recognize your choice: will you
say yes to God and give of
yourself to this person? Will you
become a bearer of grace to that
person?
“Heavenly Father, you have
chosen me and filled me with
your grace. Help me say yes to
you and make a difference in the
world around me.”
Genesis 3:9-15, 20; Psalm 98:1
