Our Mama Mary was first confused on how she will conceive a child when in fact she is still a virgin. Then Angel Gabriel explained to her the power of the Holy Spirit will come upon her. That is why, if you noticed in the “Apostle’s Creed’s Prayer”, it is been said that:
“Jesus Christ, HIS only begotten Son, our Lord was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit; born of the Virgin Mary.”
According to Catholic, this festival celebrates two things: God’s action in entering human world as Jesus in order to save us; and Humanity’s willing acceptance of God’s action in Mary’s freely given acceptance of the task of being Mother of God.
Here in the Philippines, knowing that most of the citizens are Catholics, we similarly celebrate the “International Day of the Unborn Child”.
