Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception
“Thou art all fair, O My love, and there is not a spot in thee” (Canticle of Canticles 4.7). The Advent of the Lord and Savior was to open the fount of grace shut after the Fall of man off the friendship of God (departure from the divine judgment of what is true and good, cf., Gen. 3.1-5) and to deliver us from sin – with it the dominion of the ancient infernal deceiver; but, as He was about to be made Incarnate His archangel reveals, in today’s Holy Gospel, a soul to have been exempted from this grievous malediction which Original Sin drew upon us (for the exemplary “ark of the covenant” was prepared to contain the Divine Word-Incarnate pre-sanctified by the merits of the Most Sacred and Precious Blood He would shed on the Cross and perpetuated on our traditional Apostolic altars, “We have an altar,” Heb. 13.10; cf., Pope Pius IX on his “ex cathedra” solemn definition of the Dogma of the Feast we are celebrating) as he announces to the Virgin Mary: “Ave, gratia PLENA…” (“Hail, FULL OF GRACE…,” Lk. 1.28) – fulfilling what has been foretold of Her: “Many daughters have gathered together riches: thou hast surpassed them all (Prov. 31.29).
True devotion to the Immaculata brings about in Her truly blessed beautiful children the triumph more and more of God’s grace (His divine aid) – not the distractions, influences, thinking, fornications, adultery, impurity, the perverse rainbow-colored norm, and the like contained in the cesspool of the infernal lying deceiver: the Masonic “New World/Vatican II disOrder” of the “Rights and Dignity of Man”; this is true “progress” and #Christian “dignity” – advancement in the friendship of God.
A most blessed Feast to everyone!
