As the feast of the Immaculate Conception passes, we turn to Mary at this point in Advent. Her sinlessness, virginity, and virtue are especially important to us as we look to grow in holiness.

Our Lady has many things to teach us, but here are three things that come to mind as we meditate on the immaculate conception.

Sinlessness is not boring. We think sin is interesting, edgy, and fun, but in reality it just makes us enslaved. Holiness is what sets us free.
Our bodies and souls are united. What we do with our bodies affects our souls, and what we do with our souls affects our bodies.
Chastity is not devoid of intimacy. The fulfillment of human life is not dependent on physical intimacy.

Snippet from the Show

“Mary, in her perpetual virginity, shows us that the fulfillment of human happiness is not dependent on physical intimacy.”
