Peter, this is a nice article. But please correct the use of the phrase "immaculate conception." I think you meant to say Incarnation.
The Immaculate Conception is a phrase developed by the Roman Catholic Church in 1854 to define the conception of the Virgin Mary in the womb of her mother, Saint Anne, free from original sin. The Roman Catholic Church teaches that Mary was conceived by normal biological means, but God acted upon her soul (keeping her "immaculate") at the time of her conception.
The Immaculate Conception is commonly and mistakenly taken to mean the conception of Mary's son Jesus Christ in her own womb, and the virgin birth of Jesus. These are covered by the doctrine of the Incarnation, while the Immaculate Conception deals with the conception of Mary herself, not that of her son.
Well said. We must at times seek to refresh that which already holds power. Remembering when we are moved is a key to remembering the movement of our soul.
