The Immaculate Conception is about Christ’s power to destroy sin. Mary was sinless from the first moment of her life not because she did not need a Savior, but because she was so close to the Savior. It is always and only through Jesus Christ that Mary receives her special favors and graces.
Today’s Feast is meant to give us confidence that we can say NO to any temptation. The same Christ is ready to strengthen us to do what is right. This is the kind of confidence we need to inspire in those who are pregnant and feel they cannot carry the child. God, through Mary, always provides us the strength to do what is right. Inspired by her, let us reach out with eagerness to all those who are pregnant and in need.
