Immaculate Mary

“We declare, pronounce and define that the doctrine which holds that the Blessed Virgin Mary, at the first instant of her conception, by a singular privilege and grace of the Omnipotent God, in virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ, the Saviour of mankind, was preserved immaculate from all stain of original sin, has been revealed by God, and therefore should firmly and constantly be believed by all the faithful.” – Pope Pius IX, Ineffabilis Deus, December 8, 1854

Super Mario 2

Much to the chagrin of Marie, I got Makenna into playing old school, Super Mario Brothers 2. It’s really cute because she loves to pick the princess, but I always tease her to pick my favorite, Luigi. She says, “Haha Daddy, I picked Princess!” Well, last night as I was leaving to go to a doctors appointment she says, “Daddy, I got something to show you.” I turned around to see, that she picked Luigi. She had a big goofy smile on her face. It was awesome.
