Today we celebrate the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. It is a feast that Catholics all over the world celebrate and observe as a holy day of obligation. I as a Catholic heard mass today as my little way to celebrate this feast if Mama Mary. There were more people who attended the mass at the nearby chapel where the mass was held this noon. I was not as late as I thought I was since the little boy decided to hold me in this school longer today when I sent him there. Fortunately the mass started later than usual with a foreigner priest officiating the noon mass.
The Immaculate Conception means that Mary, whose conception was brought about the normal way, was conceived without original sin or its stain—that’s what “immaculate” means: without stain. The Immaculate Conception, a solemnity, is the patronal feast of the United States and even in Catholic all over the world like here in the Philippines. It is one of the few Holy days of obligation on the Church calendar.
