On the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, we have a new video meditation on the readings for the day, on our homepage and here as well on our Youtube channel. (Thanks to Kerry Weber for producing such a beautiful video.) The Anchoress (aka Elizabeth Scalia) also has a lovely meditation on the confluence of the Immaculate Conception and St. Bernadette Soubirous in a new podcast here. And yes, St. Bernadette did "blow the priest's mind" with her declaration of what she heard in the Grotto of Lourdes. Happy Feast Day.
