The Immaculate Conception

I am happy to be “officially” starting this blog today, a very special Marian feastday.  Blessings upon any of you who may have just finished your 33-day consecration preparation, and whose Consecration Day is today, the feast of the Immaculate Conception.

I will be starting off here with posts concerning the “why” and “how” of consecration to Mary, but for today, for this feastday, I invite you to watch this excellent video, The Immaculate Conception.

Welcome To My Mary Blog

Hello, dear readers.

You may have arrived here via my other blog, Contemplative Haven.  A number of weeks ago, after publishing this post and receiving quite a bit of feedback, I realized that the combox was not where I wished to explore the subject in detail.  Also, having been drawn to posting more and more concerning the Blessed Virgin Mary, and not wishing to change the direction of Contemplative Haven completely, I decided to dedicate a site entirely to Marian discussions.

There is so much I would like to say and do here I didn’t know where to begin, and I think that was one reason for the delay in opening this site.  There’s not much in the sidebar yet, but it will all fall into place, I’m sure, as time goes by.  I’ll be adding links little by little as time allows, and the goal for the video widget (currently showing only two videos as I was learning how to use it) is to collect not only beautiful but informative Marian material.

I hope you’ll join me here.  Posts may be scarce during the Advent/Christmas season, but God willing, I’m here for the long-haul.  I guess when one doesn’t know where to start, one should just jump right in.  So let’s go.  Let’s grow.  Mary will take us by the hand and lead us. 

“The Mother of God comes to us to lead us by the hand into the sanctification of our souls, to prepare our hearts to be presented to Jesus.  All that she requests of us is an open heart.”  [Consecration Preparation for the Triumphant Victory of the Immaculate Heart of Mary]
