My Immaculate Guide!

Hail Mary

Full of Grace

the Lord is with Thee.

Blessed art thou among Women

and blessed is the fruit of thy womb


Holy Mary

Mother of God

pray for us Sinners

now and at the hour

of our death.  Amen.


If you know me personally,

know that I have great respect and admiration for our Virgin Mother,

you would also understand why I am giddy-girl excited to be celebrating her finest hour…

her Immaculate Birth!

Which gave way to her “Yes!” to God to be the Mother;

not only to Jesus, but each individual in the Universe!
