MEDITATION: Today is the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception where the Blessed Virgin Mary was saved by God from original sin from the beginning of her conception in the womb of St. Anne. Mary the Mother of God’s soul was made immaculate or saved from original sin by God for if it was not made so from the beginning, then it will appear that Jesus Christ will be stained by sin from the beginning of His conception in Mary’s womb for the soul is the one who carries the original sin, and the soul who is in original sin will damage its relation to the human flesh thus making also the human flesh impure for the soul is darkened by impurity, malice, and loss of innocence, just what had happened to Adam and Eve after they ate a fruit of the Tree of Knowledge. Then even if the only thing Jesus Christ need is humanity that will be taken from Mary’s human flesh, Jesus Christ Divinity and humanity united together as one will be stained or compromised by original sin which Mary had if Mary is not Immaculate Conception. Jesus Christ has two natures. He is Divine and He is human. Jesus is a Divine Person and His Divine Person will be united with Mary’s human person thus making His Person God-man, where His Divinity now becomes His nature and not anymore His own Person. We can see how great the humility of God is! He compromised His Divine Person when He took His humanity in Mary. Now His Divine Person is not anymore His Person alone but now a part of His own Person which is called Divine nature as God-man, and as God-man, another nature is human. If Mary is not Immaculate Conception or even full of grace, Mary’s humanity will compromise and stain with sin the Person of the God-man Jesus Christ, if Mary’s soul is not made immaculate by God from the very beginning of Mary’s conception in St. Anne’s womb. God willed that from the beginning, Adam and Eve be holy and without blemish before Him (Ephesians 1:4). Now, if that is God’s will from the very beginning before the foundation of the world, is it not very fitting to begin again and to have a New Adam in the Person of Jesus Christ who will be born of Mary, the New Eve?
Adam is immaculate and so is Eve before they fell from sin. Jesus is immaculate of course and so His mother Mary because Mary is full of grace and she has found favour with God. Grace and sin cannot be united to each other. Then how much more is the Immaculate Conception Mary who is full of grace herself? Is not it right to believe that Mary is the Immaculate Conception and she is without original sin?
But how the Immaculate Conception began? The Immaculate Conception began when God said it and He did it. God said the Word and He did it. The Immaculate Conception began in God’s Eternal Wisdom that this Immaculate Conception will champion the purity and innocence Adam and Eve lost. God said it in Genesis that the Immaculate Conception and the serpent will have enmity against each other and even between the offspring of the serpent and of hers; the Immaculate Conception will strike at the serpent’s head while the serpent strike her heel. If there is a continuous battle between Mama Mary and Satan and between her children and his children, how can you arrive at a diabolic conclusion that Mary is not the Immaculate Conception?
Indeed, Mama Mary is Immaculate Conception and she is full of grace!
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
“Jesus, I trust in You” “O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee”
