Immaculate Conception




In the winter of the world,
deep shadows and
dangers,
God's wild love ~
compulsive love ~ 
breaks over us, 
and the little girl is
conceived,
all brightness.
And Joachim and Anna are glad;
hell is anxious,
and earth shed's tears
for joy and relief.

O Lady of Help!
O Mother of  Tenderness ~
prepare hearts
for the disturbance Christ brings ~
your Son and our God!

Father Stephen P. Morris

  3. Advent is a time of light. Mary's Immaculate Conception is God's preparing for his greatest gift, his Son.
