Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. God made us for Himself. For millennia he prepared a people and finally a woman to receive His Son. Mary was "unstained" by sin. She was on earth what we are meant to be in Heaven. God has been working in your life to make you ready to "unstained" with Him forever. Christ will be coming for each of us, but He is also come to be with us right here and now at Mass. (8 Dec 2012)
