Views 1512

Homily #141208b ( 15min) Play - Fr. Alan explains the fittingness of God's grace of conceiving His mother immaculately, without sin, full of grace. He uses the explanation first given by Bl. John Duns Scotus which was used by Pope Bl. Pius IX when he solemnly proclaimed the doctrine as a dogma. It boils down to: God can  do it, it is fitting, so he did it (potuit, decuit, ergo fecit)
