I’m amazed at all I’ve been learning from my urban garden. I’ve shared my lessons in my latest post on “Catholic to the Core.” I bet you’ll learn something, too, even if you’re a veteran gardener! Be sure to take the video tour of my little refuge. Enjoy!
Some folks mistakenly think that this feast refers to our Lord - that he was immaculately conceived, without stain of sin. Well, that's true, but that's what the Annunciation is all about, not the Immaculate Conception. The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception refers to the conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, who was conceived without original sin.
