In the pierced heart of the Crucified, God's own heart is opened up--here we see who God is and what he is like. Heaven is no longer locked up. God has stepped out of hiddenness.
~Pope Benedict XVI

Feast of the Immaculate Conception
Happy Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary! Remember that it's a holy day of obligation. Most churches will have several Masses offered. Here are some pictures from my pilgrimage to Lourdes last spring.
