Mary under the title of the Immaculate Conception is patroness of the United States. And the feast is one that has special significance to our congregation. Every year our sisters--either within their local convents or in their parishes renew their vows communally.
Here at Assisi House the vow renewal took place during the Eucharistic liturgy. At the convent where I normally live, we usually renew vows either as part of our morning or evening prayer.
So...on this very special day, I ask Our Lady to bless each of you in a very special way and I share with you one of my favorite Marian hymns. Happy Feast Day!
