Join Brian Patrick and me on the Sonrise Morning Show tomorrow (Tuesday, May 10) at 6:45AM EST as we chat about ways to honor our Blessed Mother during May. Would love your input! http://sonrisemorningshow.com/
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.
