An important Feast for all during Advent, but particularly for mothers and little girls. Girls tend to revere all things beautiful in life, and God knew they would need a beautiful, perfectly spotless (and feminine!) model to look upon.
Every virtue I desire for my daughters is in her, perfectly, from the moment of her conception. Excuse me while I go kiss two little sleeping girls in the house.....
It'll be a busy day here - attending mass for the solemnity, a Christmas parade afterwards, buying a Christmas tree and hosting guests. There's something else I'm forgetting, but for the life of me I can't remember what it is. It's late. I must be tired, so I'll retire now.
Have a lovely Feast, everyone!
