Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary • Before we were conceived in our mother's womb, we were conceived in the mind of God. He thought up the finished product: the saints in heaven are all immaculate. Mary was on earth what we will be in Heaven. Work along with God so that His conception of you can become a reality.

Point to Ponder: Do we have to wait until Heaven, or can we begin to be immaculate now?

Point to Discuss: Every child has a right to be the product of loving intimacy between a husband and a wife. Talk to a friend about the idea that God has already thought up every person before they are conceived.
