10-30 Immaculate Conception

This is not Catholic dogma, which purports Mary herself was immaculately conceived and was sinless in this life.

Immaculate Conception


Ponder the miraculous laws of gravity,

Bending space-time’s invisible mesh—

Then in each December’s lyrical Advent,

Hold memory clear and fresh

How eons ago, the Father of lights

Illumined a maiden. A greater miracle:

The Word became flesh.
