December 18th, Our Lady in Expectation

Posted by immaculata - Dezember 18, 2010

The Feast was removed from the Roman Calendar during the reign Pope St Pius X (in the name of simplification!). The Feast is long overdue for restoration in the calendar, not least as an antidote to the rampant commercialism of Christmas that Pope St Pius would never have dreamed of, and as Our Lady under this title is a most excellent Patroness of Expectant Mothers.
