Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women Luke 1:28.
Meditation on Immaculate Conception may help us to realize how great is God's detestation of sin. He wanted to have the poor mother but free from even the smallest sin. Thou hatest all the workers of iniquity (Ps 5:7). That is why He wrought His biggest miracle, to keep His chosen one without blemish. This miracle will help us to realize how mighty is God's grace. It will help to increase our hope for salvation. The sweet true is that purity brings joy. For Immaculata brought us joy which she expressed in Magnificat. She brought happiness into the house of Elisabeth and during Cana wedding. Purity of heart is mighty even with God, for Mary is the most pure and mighty before God's throne. We can learn from her. In holy wonder Triune God call: How beautiful art thou, my love, how beautiful art thou! Canticles 4:1. Keeping in mind Our Redeemer words: Give not that which is holy to dogs; neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest perhaps they trample them under their feet, and turning upon you, they tear you. Matt 7:6 we need to take great care of the soul's purity. Let us turn to Immaculate Mary and recommend our efforts to her: O Most Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for my poor heart! . Let us be brave in fighting for holy purity of heart, and Immaculata will bring us spiritual happiness and joy and will make us God's friends. Let us sing together with the Holy Church: With joy we celebrate the Immaculate Conception of the Most Blessed Virgin, asking her intercession with her divine Son Our Lord Jesus Christ
