Tomorrow is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary. It’s a holy day and in my earlier life it was a holiday. I’ve often thought of the coincidence of my birthday with the holy day. Even in my early years I had a special connection with Mary. Perhaps it came from my Mom. She was and is a rosary prayer. Maybe there was just some special connection with Mary for me. In any event the Blessed Lady is part of my spirituality. Blue is my favorite color. I’m wearing a blue hoodie and blue jeans. Yesterday it was a blue shirt, blue sweater and blue corduroys. I do like other colors, but throughout my life there has been a special attraction to blue. My car is Marian blue too. Mary is my special protector. Salve Regina.
