The Immaculate Conception is also the patroness of the United States with this title, declared so officially by the first Council of Baltimore in 1846.

I attended the Novena today at 12:10pm. As always, the complete service was heavenly.

The Institute always serves the litugry well. Very beautiful indeed.
