Feast of the Immaculate Conception
8th December 2017 - h. 9:30 a.m.
The Immaculate Conception opens History and the Mother of the Eucharist closes History
God created Mary holy, full of grace and Immaculate. In her, there has never been sin and, since the first moment of conception in her mother's womb, she has been conscious and able to love immensely. God's will for each son of His is them to be saint and for this reason He gave us Mary as Mother, so that she could live next to us and take us to the highest love, the one coming from the Eucharist. The universal maternity was accepted with joy by Mary, who abandoned herself to the will of his All. Only to her, "full of grace", could be entrusted such a great mission. The Lord wanted to exalt in the eyes of men the greatness of this so perfect human creature, but the company of Mary, who is full of love, sharing, participation, solidarity, intimate understanding, gentleness and discretion, is active and operating in our life only if we want it.
Mary, Immaculate Conception, became the Mother of the Eucharist because God wants to stay among us in the Eucharistic presence. Among the Immaculate Conception and the Mother of the Eucharist exists, therefore, a common thread running through the History. To confirm this, on July 17, 1994 Marisa, for the first time, saw two Madonnas: the Immaculate of Lourdes and the Mother of the Eucharist. Our Lady herself revealed this divine plan several times in the messages, saying, "The Immaculate Conception opens History and the Mother of the Eucharist closes History". This does not mean that the apparitions of the Mother of the Eucharist will not be followed by others with other names, but that of all the titles that have been or will be given to her, although beautiful and great, the most important will always be Mother of the Eucharist.
Until the establishment, by the God's will, of the feast of the Mother of the Eucharist, celebrated on October 24, the feast of the Immaculate Conception was considered by our community the most important Marian feast and, as every year, together with the whole Church, we celebrate it solemnly.
