A Woman Wrapped in Silence


Today we celebrate Mary’s Immaculate Conception. She was conceived “without sin” in her mother’s womb.

On this Feast Day, I’d like to share another excerpt from an article by Catherine Doherty, entitled “A Woman Wrapped in Silence.”

Just think about that strange, incredible, unbelievable faith of a young girl. At fourteen years old she became the Mother of God and the Mother of men. She knew full well that people would not understand that she had conceived by the Holy Spirit. For a long time after her marriage to Joseph she must have been the talk of the town. In those days the women used to wash their linens in ponds. When she brought her linen I’m sure people began to whisper about her. I can just see those gossipy women. But Our Lady never said anything. She was the woman wrapped in silence.
