PODCAST | Transformed by Grace

[ Transcript ]

The Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception on December 8, honoring the dogma that Mary was conceived without Original Sin.

In this podcast, Fr. Eric Nicolai reflects on the joy of this great solemnity in which we are encouraged to pray for an increase in our docility to the work of the Holy Spirit so that we may turn away from sin and allow the Lord to work through us as we work to build up the Kingdom of God.

Fr. Eric explains: “Even though we have sin, even though we have rebellion, even though we have those things that lead us away from God, the Lord can transform us nevertheless, and with Our Lady’s intercession, can truly make us into the saints that the world needs today, that the Church needs today, and that we truly want to become.”


The St. Josemaria Institute is pleased to partner with ASL Catholic Media to share a video recording of this podcast interpreted in American Sign Language:
