It’s the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception December 8, 2010

No, not when Roger Staubach threw a 4th quarter touchdown pass to Drew Pearson (yes, he pushed off, but who cares).  And no, it doesn’t have anything to do with the conception or birth of Jesus (that’s the Incarnation).  Get thee to Church. 

How’s this for a prayer for this great day:

O God, who in the foreknowledge of thy Son’s most precious death didst consecrate for him a dwelling-place by the spotless Conception of the Blessed Virgin: mercifully grant that she who was preserved from all defilement; may evermore pray for us until we attain unto thee in purity of heart; through the same Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord; who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen

How does this Anglican-use prayer compare with what you heard at Mass today?
