Mary, under the title of her Immaculate Conception, is the Patroness of the United States. As such, this is our unique patronal feast day.
Mary, the bearer of the Prince of Peace, is our model for bringing the peace of Christ to birth. How do we help bring peace to birth? How do we carry the peace of Christ to the world? The conception of Mary by Anna as immaculate (free from original sin) is a conclusion derived from the Church's understanding of who Jesus is and Mary's role as Theotokos, Mother of God. The readings focus on Mary's relationship to Jesus (and, indirectly, to the church).
