Feast of the Immaculate Conception 2013

St. Joachim and St. Ann gave us Mary, the Star of the Sea—God’s chosen vessel of purity immaculately conceived.  Her strength, sweetness and wisdom serve as our model of virtue.

As we consecrate to the Blessed Virgin each moment of our life, we learn to prepare for our death, which is after all the deciding moment of our eternal journey.

Here is Giovanni Maria Mastai-Ferretti’s  Ineffabilis Deus

Book of Hours, early 16th Century, School of Île-de-France.
