    Jennie! This is amazing. I am shocked that this was here today. I was just discussing the Immaculate Conception with a Protestant friend. This is perfect to help explain why Mary is so important in our faith. Thank you!

    Beautiful and thoughtful perspective on how many of your fellow Catholic sisters feel Jennie! I agree - how can we not all love and find inspiration from our Gentle Mother Mary? She is the heart of our Catholic motherhood. Thanks for some great words!

    What a beautiful and insightful reflection on Mary. Especially today as we celebrate the Immaculate Conception.

    Where did you find this saint! Of course she's not sure about her left and right --- "On the left side of the page there's a box called Latest News." Great job, Jen!
