Yesterday, December 8th was the feastday of the Immaculate Conception (Mary’s conception within the womb of her mother St. Anne). We want to thank Dan Engler for sending the above painting to us representing this wondrous mystery of our faith. Below is a quote from Cardinal Berulle describing God’s miraculous involvement in Mary’s life.

“He happily preserved her from all offense, He adorns her with all grace. He makes her worthy of carrying him and receiving him into the world. He comes into her as into his tabernacle. He rests for nine moths in her as on his throne. He comes to us through her.” Cardinal Berulle, Vie de Jesus.
