December 8th: Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Gospel text
Lk 1:26-38
The angel Gabriel was sent from God to (…) Mary. And coming to her, he said, “Hail, full of grace! The Lord is with you.”
Gospel's Commentary
Today is the great celebration of the Virgin Mary, God’s Mother and our Mother too. We celebrate that she was conceived full of Grace, without the blemish of original sin. From the very first moment of her existence she was full of God and fully united to His Divine Will. However, it does not mean that her life was an "easy" one. She grew up and learned as we do: through effort. - Do you remember where Jesus was born? It was not easy for Mary! Do you remember where Jesus Christ died? It was not easy, either!
