    so today out of the blue my iPhone beeps lights up next Monday 120813 is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.

    You tell me Madonna is so stealth to announce she is pregnant only 2 or 3 weeks before the birth of her child. Her stomach is huge?

    You are under the misconception (pun intended) that the dogma of the Immaculate Conception refers to Mary's conception. It does not. It refers to her conception in her mother's womb in which she was conceived without stain of original sin. Therefore, her proclamation to Bernadette at Lourdes: I am the Immaculate Conception.

    Huh? That logical? I always thought the immaculate conception refered to Mary shagging the Holy Ghost or the father and conceiving Jesus. Not a catholic here, so don't crucify me if I mixed things up.

    Google first, post later! Sorry, just looked it up, what wrote up there is nunsense

    Yellow = illegible; content = nonsensical.

    I had to edit my post. It should have read "without original sin."

    There is a movement to encourage women to return to covering their head in Church on Dec 8th the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.Some Catholics and non Catholics alike may not know that Catholic women wore a headcovering in Church (hat or veil) for around 1970 years before the practice virtually disappeared overnight.I am strongly supportive of the return of this tradition!icon_smile.gif

    The meaning of the veil has become completely lost to people in the West. I don't see what returning to it would accomplish.

    When a woman covers her head in Church it is a sign of respect toward Our Lord Jesus Christ.So it wonderful that many young Catholic women are bringing tradition back.

    They weren't baptized so their souls are just ripe for punishment!

    @wickedryan, I have always wondered what happened to that tradition that I saw in movies. Thanks.

    @undercoverman, I confirm that about the Immaculate Conception--I still remember from Catechism classes.

    I side with feminists who say the virgin Mary holds women back. The responses on this thread just go to show that women aren't treated as equals.

    Why don't men have to cover their heads if women do? Answer: women have to be mousy virgins to repent for causing original sin and man's fall from grace.icon_rolleyes.gif

    I show my respect to women by vomiting on this misogynistic dogma.
