Did you know that Our Lady of Lourdes introduced herself to Bernadette as "The Immaculate Conception"!?
So what does "The Immaculate Conception" mean?
Mary, the Immaculate Conception, is often called the "New Eve", because she was created without sin just as Eve was. But unlike Eve, she was willing to follow and trust God throughout her life, Sadly, Eve choose to sin later in life.
Because of Mary choosing to never sin, Jesus was able to be born and later died to save us from our sins!
Because "The Immaculate Conception" choose to remain sinless and because she said "Yes" to God, we are all able to enter heaven!
I hopped over to Catholic Icing for Lacy's Immaculate Conceptions coloring page. Lacy added some wonderful symbols to her picture, too. (an apple tree, a serpent and three rays of light) Read more on her blog.
Thanks, Lacy, for sharing your talents.
My 4 younger girls had a great time coloring this wonderful picture.
They did a great job!!St. Anne looks good with purple hair don't ya think!?!? ;-)
Praying you all have a blessed day!
Oh and don't forget to go to Mass! It is a Holy Day of Obligation.
