Immaculate Conception

The Philippines being largely a Roman Catholic nation is celebrating today the feast of Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

The doctrine of Immaculate Conception is the belief that Virgin Mary is free from original sin.  Unlike all human beings, it is a special gift given by God as she would become the mother of the Lord's only son, our savior Jesus Christ.

Virgin Mary's life is a challenge to us all, to live our life in obedience to God's will. As she remained to serve the Lord to the very end, and remained without sin, we too must strive to live a good life and follow her lead 'til the end of our life.
