The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception invites us to reflect on Our Lady’s growing importance in modern times, beginning in 1830 with the apparitions at the convent of the Daughters of Charity in Rue du Bac, Paris and continuing up to today.
Since then there has been a continuous crescendo of Mary’s light that illuminates the darkness of a world that puts itself in God’s place. The Handmaid of the Lord descends to the battlefield of the dark empire of lies and death to crush its proud head and to bring the kingship of Jesus Christ to the world. Within and around us rages a battle to which the Queen of Heaven calls her “apostles” to fight for the triumph of her Immaculate Heart.
From the beginning, Our Lady has assured us of the final victory and does not cease to do so still, when the power of evil in the world seems an invincible force. Against evil the Virgin now powerfully carries out her victories silently, within her children who convert, in those who courageously bear witness, and in those who, out of love for her and Jesus, face persecution and martyrdom.
We must be part of this multitude of “Mary’s Apostles” who carry the light of truth and the fire of love to a world that has lost its way through self-worship and fallen into the slavery of the infernal serpent.
Yours truly, Fr. Livio
