Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of Mary


Today is the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of Mary.
See the excellent Catholic Encyclopedia entry here.

Go here to see Catholic Culture's article and here for their activities and ideas for observing the day.

This gorgeous painting is by our artist of the month, Bartolome Esteban Murillo. (See some of the other beautiful images of the Blessed Mother, which we've been taking a look at, here, here, here.)

Have a blessed feast day!

I love the idea of Murillo for December artist of the month. I'll have to remember that!
