The Lord Jesus gave me to know how very pleasing to Him is a soul who lives in accordance with the will of God. It thereby gives very great glory to God ...
Diary of St. Faustina, 821


Wow, living in accordance with the will of God sounds awesome, doesn't it? If it also sounds far-fetched, then here's some advice. Today is the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, a perfect time to not only honor Our Blessed Mother but to also honor what God desires for us.

Mary is not only the Mother of Jesus, she is our mother as well. She is our spiritual mother who wishes to give to her children the same nature she has. She was immaculately conceived, conceived without sin. As Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, says, "What Mary has at the beginning of her life, no sin whatsoever, God wants us to have at the end of our life. God chose to create Mary as the Immaculate Conception because He wanted all of us to have a perfect mother who would serve as the blueprint, pattern, and model for what it means to be a member of the Church. In reality, there is only one model for what it means to be a member of the Church, namely, the Immaculate Conception."

Mary, look after my needs. Calm my soul. Help me to turn from sin. Nurture the Christ-life within me, from now until the hour of my death. Amen.

Yes Mary is the Mother of Jesus as well as our mother. She was conceived without original. I have consecrated my life, body and soul with all my possession(both spiritual and material) to Her, so that she would lead me to her son Jesus Christ. "ALL TO JESUS, THROUGH MARY OUR MOTHER".

Mary is IMMACULATE AND SPOTLESS. She is full of grace and the privileged handmaid of the Lord. Her conception was Immaculate. She is our sinless mother. O Mary obtain for us the graces we need to live a holy and pure life through Jesus Christ your son, Amen.
