Feast of the Immaculate Conception

Holy Day of Obligation

We celebrate Mary, who from the first instant of her existence in the womb of her mother Anne was ‘by a singular grace and privilege of Almighty God, and in view of the merits of Jesus Christ, Saviour of the human race, preserved free from all stain of original sin’. We give praise to God, font of grace and source of Mary’s holiness, as we honour her today.

Genesis 3:9-15, 20.

This selection from Genesis carries the reassurance that in spite of sin the human race is not to be written off. It is the story of disobedience and of sin but this is not the whole story. Fear and shame are the signs of sin and so Adam and Eve hide from God. Yet, despite their sin, they are still chosen by God and ‘Eve’ is called ‘mother of all the living’.

Ephesians 1:3-6, 11-12

From the beginning of time we were chosen by God. St. Paul tells us that before the world was made, God chose us in Christ. We are reminded that by virtue of our baptism we are chosen and set free from sin. The chosen of God belong to him. All of this is part of God’s great plan of salvation – a plan, in which Mary plays a pivotal role.

Luke 1:26-38

The focus of the reading is on the conception of Jesus, not Mary. This is all part of God’s planning and preparation. Mary, in her conversation with the angel (God’s messenger), is questioning, yet, she remains open and accepting compared to Eve in the Genesis story who is blaming others and defensive. Mary’s words are of willingness to allow God act in and through her. As a result, her child is holy, the work of God and the new creation. She becomes the ‘new Eve’. Mary is truly blessed – Luke who is writing after the death, resurrection and glorification of Christ, sees in Mary the agent and vehicle of God’s new creation – she will bring forth “he who is God’s promised one, who will save his people from their sins”.

A Mhuire Mháthair

A Mhuire Mháthair, ‘sé seo mo ghuí,

Go maire Íosa go deo im’ chroí.

Avé Maria, mo ghrá, avé,

Is tusa mo mháthair, is máthair Dé.


A Mhuire Mháthair ‘tá lán de ghrást’,

Go raibh tú taobh liom ar uair mo bháis.

Avé Maria, mo ghrá, avé,

Is tusa mo mháthair, is máthair Dé.

An Ghiniúint gan Smál

490  Chun a bheith ina Máthair ag an Slánaitheoir, ‘sholáthraigh Dia do Mhuire tíolacthaí a bhí ar aon mhiosúr leis an bheart mór a bhí le cur i gcrích aici. ‘Ag nóiméad an tsanais, beannaíonn an tAingeal Gaibrial di mar ‘lán de ghrásta’. D’fhonn a beith in ann toiliú saorálach a creidimh a thabhairt don ghairm a bhí fógartha di, is amhlaidh ba ghá di grásta Dé ina thaca aici.       Caiticiosma na hEaglaise Caitlicí
