Sancta et Immaculata

"Christ loved the Church and sacrificed himself for her to make her holy, so that when he took her to himself she would be glorious, with no speck or wrinkle or anything like that, but holy and faultless." - Ephesians 5:25f Our Lady is the image of the sinless Church, and today *8 December) we celebrate her Immaculate Conception. "O God, you prepared a fit dwelling place for your Son through the Virgin's Immaculate Conception. Because of the foreseen death of that Son, you kept her entirely without blemish. We beseech you that through her pleadings you would grant us, also, to come to you without stain. Through the same Christ your Son and our Lord. Amen" - the Collect for today's feast.
