The feast of the Immaculate Conception
Posted by dorian on December 9, 2009
december 8 is the feast of the immaculate conception.
why would non-practicing catholic like me, considered “heathen” by most , especially by my family, remember this day and even go as far as commemorating it with a post?
well, i’m doing this in memory of my mother and grandmother, who were both devoted to the virgin mary. i even resisted the temptation to use the image of the virgin mary in a grilled cheese sandwich and opted for the traditional roman catholic image of the blessed virgin. this is my best effort to date at being reverent. the title of this post alone has enough material in it for a sacrilegious tangent or two. but i am steadfastly resisting. however, my tenacity with these things (not being a wise***) is tenuous at best so i’d better publish my marian post now. thank you, aunt lily, for the annual reminder about this holy day. yes, i will make my attempt at the one thousand hail marys before the day is over.
