What a day for a Birthday!!

The feast of the Immaculate Conception is my former Marine’s birthday!!

  Please offer up a special prayer  as a gift for my hard-working loving dh Jeffrey today!  I would love to shower him with a bouquet of prayers and well wishes!

If you would leave a birthday greeting, I am sure it would make his day!

"I Am the Immaculate Conception."
Happy Feast Day Holy Mother!

At the National Shrine Mary’s Garden’s dedication on June 10, 2000,  Msgr. Bransfield stated
in his remarks at the dedication:

"The Song of Songs speaks of ‘An Enclosed Garden’, ‘A Fountain Sealed’ – imagery referring to Mary’s fidelity, her immaculate conception, her perpetual virginity.
