Homily from the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Mary is the woman of the Promise because she is the New Eve. God continues to fight the enemies of those whom He loves through the intercession of Mary, the Mother of His Son. Even though her “yes” cost her her life and the life of her Son, Mary continues to say “yes” to the Father when His children need God’s grace.
