Today is the feast of The Immaculate Conception. As the angel Gabriel at the moment of the Annunciation saluted her, 'Hail Mary, full of grace!' we honor our Blessed Mother. She was conceived without the stain of original sin, making her the spotless tabernacle for Our Lord's coming.

As a side note... I am sorry I have had little new work to show you for the past six months. I have been recovering from a back injury, but it is, at last, so much better... I pray I have something new to show you soon.

Happy feast day!
