Immaculate Conception: just thinking

When a mother and father conceive a child, they rejoice.  The news spreads like wildfire, of this joyous occasion.  The whole family is excited at the prospect of a new child, and who he/she will become.

Can you imagine for a moment how our God must have felt, at the thought of our Blessed Mother, who would say “yes” in the participation, of redeeming His beloved humanity.  What great expectation He must have had at the conception of the Ark of the Covenant, the Theotokos of the Savior of the world.  The conception of Our Lady…in the womb of St Ann, yes, …but so lovingly, ingeniously and wondrously in the mind and heart of the Father.  I just had to say, what an amazing day this is!
