Eve and Adam messed it all up by rebelling against God’s loving divine order. Original Sin is the virus that is everywhere in our world and in our nature. But God came up with plan B and it all started when Mary was conceived, in her very beginning of her existence. God created her for Himself and for our salvation. The re-conquest of the destroyed natural order began. The devil was out smarted as he had out smarted Eve and Adam. We now have the graces to resist concupiscence and choose a holy way of life. This is all part of human and divine history. Today we celebrate God’s victory through Mary over the devil. A new dawn broke around 15 BC. We have the joy of being other grace bearers today with Jesus and Mary for a fallen world to arise to God again.
