December Devotion: The Immaculate Conception of Mary
We believe that the Blessed Mary Ever Virgin was preserved free from original sin from the first moment of conception. The positive consequence of total freedom for all sin proclaims Mary’s perfect holiness which was granted by the grace and privilege from God. We celebrate Mary’s immaculate conception on the 8th December.
O Most Blessed Mother, heart of love, heart of mercy, ever listening, caring, consoling, hear our prayer. As your children, we implore your intercession with Jesus your Son. Receive with understanding and compassion the petitions we place before you today, especially... (special intention).
We are comforted in knowing your heart is ever open to those who ask for your prayer. We trust to your gentle care and intercession, those whom we love and who are sick or lonely or hurting. Help all of us, Holy Mother, to bear our burdens in this life until we may share eternal life and peace with God forever.
