Happy Feast Day of the Immaculate Conception of Mary

God bless you on this great feast day of the Immaculate Conception of the Ever-Virgin Mary, Mother of God, protectress of all Christians, and far and away the holiest of all creatures. Your heart burns with more love for God than the Seraphim. Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of death. Amen. Believe firmly, and never doubt, that St. Mary never contracted any stain of original, venial, or mortal sin.

Mass today, like the previous masses here at college, almost made me cry with tears of joy at the promises of God and tears of sorrow for my sins. Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
