Instead of opening a Lego Advent Calendar, this year we read the Kids #Bible and pray Advent Prayers under the #ChristmasTree. We are learning a lot and having fun doing it. Extremely grateful for Gods’ Grace.
Happy Feast of the #ImmaculateConception! In the Constitution Ineffabilis Deus of December 8, 1854, Pius IX pronounced and defined that the Blessed Virgin Mary “in the first instance of her conception, by a singular privilege and grace granted by God, in view of the merits of Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the human race, was preserved exempt from all stain of original sin.”
Simply, if God could make His own mother, wouldn’t He maker her perfect, free from sin? And He did.
Happy Feast of St. Nicholas! (Dec 6)
Patron of children, bakers, mariners, and broadcasters (!), St. Nicholas (aka #Santa Claus) was a 4th century Bishop known for his generous gift-giving to the poor. He’s depicted here by Fra Angelico giving dowry to three poor girls.
