The Feast of the Immaculate Conception, the Patroness of our Country. The Masses will be at 5:30 P.M. Friday, 8:00 A.M. and 10:00 A.M. Saturday. The 5:00 P.M. Mass on Saturday is NEXT SUNDAY’S MASS … “it doesn’t ‘count’ for the Immaculate Conception. On the Immaculate Conception we think about these words: Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word. She’s young, she’s not married, and now this angel shows up and tells her she will bear a son. And not just any son, mind you, but God’s Son. Even though Mary questions how this is possible, she accepts Gabriel’s explanation. For courage, wisdom and a willingness to say yes, we pray. (The event of her con- ception in the womb of Saint Anne isn’t covered in Sacred Scripture, but we know it happened! This Gospel, of the Annunciation, is the next best thing to explain how blessed Mary truly is!)
