“Who Are You, O’ Immaculate Conception?”

March 6, 2022

Hello Dear Ones, may the Lord bless you all with open minds and hearts.

I was reading “Day 10” from the “33 Days to Morning Glory” book. That chapter is part two of “Who are You, O Immaculate Conception?”. And I set myself about reading this chapter and it said;

DAY 10

Who are you, O Immaculate Conception? (Part Two)

So the Holy Spirit is the uncreated Immaculate Conception and Mary is the created Immaculate Conception. Why not make it easier and just say that the Holy Spirit is the Immaculate Conception and Mary was immaculately conceived? Again, it’s all because of Lourdes. Blame St. Bernadette!

In all seriousness, we should thank both St. Bernadette and St. Kolbe profusely, because their fidelity to grace is now opening up for us a glorious truth that undergirds the whole theology of Marian Consecration. This truth has to do with the union between the Holy Spirit and Mary. Kolbe explains this in a passage that is long and difficult but incredibly rich and deserving of deep reflection:

The passage says:

<What type of union is this [between the Holy Spirit and Mary]? It is above all an interior union, a union of her essence with the “essence” of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit dwells in her, lives in her. This was true from the first instant of her existence. It was always true; it will always be true.

In what does this life of the Spirit in Mary consist? He himself is uncreated Love in her; the Love of the Father and of the Son, the Love by which God loves himself, the very love of the Most Holy Trinity. He is a fruitful Love, a “Conception.” Among creatures made in God’s image the union brought about by married love is the most intimate of all (see Mt 19:6). In a much more precise, more interior, more essential manner, the Holy Spirit lives in the soul of the Immaculata, in the depths of her very being. He makes her fruitful, from the very first instant of her existence, all during her life, and for all eternity.

This eternal “Immaculate Conception” (which is the Holy Spirit) produces in an immaculate manner divine life itself in the womb (or depths) of Mary’s soul, making her the Immaculate Conception, the human Immaculate Conception. And the virginal womb of Mary’s body is kept sacred for him; there he conceives in time — because everything that is material occurs in time — the human life of the Man-God.

… If among human beings the wife takes the name of her husband because she belongs to him, is one with him, becomes equal to him and is, with him, the source of new life, with how much greater reason should the name of the Holy Spirit, who is the divine Immaculate Conception, be used as the name of her in whom he lives as uncreated Love, the principle of life in the whole supernatural order of grace?>

In light of this remarkable passage, I’d like to make three points. First, ponder it again, deeply, and prayerfully. As you do, keep in mind that these are the parting words of one of the greatest Marian saints of all time, answering the very question to which he dedicated his life and energies. Second, if it seems that Kolbe has gone a bit overboard with this talk of Mary and her union with the Holy Spirit, don’t worry. Pope Paul VI went out of his way to reassure the faithful that Kolbe’s teaching is sound. Third, if you only get one point from this challenging passage, may it be this: Mary is the Spouse of the Holy Spirit. In fact, her union with the Holy Spirit is even deeper than what we understand by a spousal relationship.

That was the end of the chapter which I had read, and after finishing the chapter, I set myself to thinking—I thought, Holy Spirit is the Immaculate Conception conceiving Mary immaculately. They concluded that Mary is the Spouse of the HOLY SPIRIT and as a wife takes after the name of the husband, so does Mary take the title of the Holy Spirit, which is the Immaculate Conception. Holy Spirit, the One behind the birth of all Life. He breathes upon the seed of everything, giving it the Breath of Life, and the seed then comes into being and grows. Be it the seed of a plant, a tree, an egg, in the womb, a planet, anything. He is the Lord Giver of Life, the One Conceiving Life, immaculately.

It made me ponder the image I had seen a while back of Mary, a dove above her, Jesus’ face right after, and a light way in the back behind Jesus. And I thought, “No one comes to the Father except through Me,” Jesus says. “No one can confess Jesus as Lord except through the Holy Spirit. And the one coming as a Forerunner before the Holy Spirit (or together with the Holy Spirit) is Mary, His immaculate spouse. Mary comes with the Holy Spirit, bringing you to Jesus the Son so that you can go and have access to the Father.

I set me also to thinking, “Are you saying that all throughout the ages, every believer has passed through Mary’s praying hands to be brought to salvation in Jesus’?”

She and the Holy Spirit together throughout history. Holy Spirit brings souls to Jesus, the Son, but since He (the Holy Spirit) and Mary are inseparable, The Holy Spirit does not leave her aside and go tend to it alone. It is only natural and due to think Holy Spirit comes along with Mary.

Let’s think of this: She is the mother of the physical body of Jesus. And since she is the mother of the physical body of Jesus – Jesus has another body, a wide spiritual body, which is the Church. So, being the mother of the physical body of Jesus, it would only be due that she would be the mother of Jesus’s second body – the Church—a Church which is made up of many nations and tribes and tongues.

Then my thoughts, again, went on to thinking;

The uncreated Immaculate Conception (which is the Holy Spirit) generated the created Immaculate Conception where He lives (which is Mary) – Holy Spirit inside Mary. Ever there with her now, since the start of her Immaculate Conception in the womb of her mother, overshadowing her at the descend of Jesus, and now being with her unto all eternity. They will not be separated.

I also thought of something else which goes something like this;

Holy Spirit is the first one to beget “his spouse” (his sinless Beloved Mary, who had no sin in her blood). Then, Jesus is the second in line to beget “his spouse” (the Church—the Church made out of many nations and tribes and tongues). Then, Father God is the last one to beget “his spouse”, which is Israel. Israel is everybody who believes—the Seed of Faith—not only physical Israel itself but Spiritual Israel also. Which [means that] physical Israel is engulfed and consumed inside Spiritual Israel itself, they are a part of it. The Bride of Christ is inside Spiritual Israel. The Bride of the Holy Spirit is from the seed of Israel and is the Mother of the Bride of the Son. And the Bride of the Holy Spirit (who is Mary) is a daughter to God the Father herself. So we have a whole family—all are linked as in a huge family setting. [Discernment: on the “spouses idea” got “obedience”] [Israel and the Bride, “obedience”]

I thought, wow!

Mary has been allowed to know the exact number of those who will come to believe. She knows the exact number of every believer who will ever come to believe [Discernment: “eternal life”]. Can you imagine that? And I remember (this came from a book that I read about her) that she knows the number. So, the Mother with the Holy Spirit are Forerunners before the Son.

She comes with the Holy Spirit to bring you to the Son—the Son who would bring you to the Father.

My Name Is Mary Elisha I started this blog 6 years ago on my journey walking with Jesus and never knew all that he had in store for me. It has been a journey of tears, trust and confidence in him. Knowing that He is my loving spouse and he wouldn't lead me astray however he has given many suprises along the way! lol Upon fully surrendering my life to Jesus, he has completely turn my world right side up. Filled me with his spirit and showed himself in supernatural ways. He has completely left me in awe leaving me with the thought.....(as most Holy Spirit filled followers of Christ also say) why didn't I surrender 15 years ago! lol. When I started this blog I was a 30 years old zealous for the Lord and desiring to make his love known because it tranformed my life. However, I didn't know the way and the road in which he would take me. It is the way of the cross, the way of holiness and the way of love. Living a life seperated from the world and compltely concecrated to him. I no longer belong to myself, but to him as he has led me to a life of hiddeness and deep intimacy I didn't know was so avalialble for all who would make their lives, their hearts his home. He has given me a new name, a renewed purpose and a heavenly family who is so very present and so real to me. Saints who cheer me on, give me council and pray for me everyday to ensure I do the Lords will and the greatest gift of all He has led me to his Mother! Who has always been My Mother just never knew it. I love Mother Mary, she is my heart, my friend and confidant and continues to prepare me to a worthy bride to her son, Jesus. It is she, who has handpicked me for this mission and to run the community "City of God: Sacred Heart Refuge" in Ghana, West Africa. This is her mission and her ministry as a gift to Jesus and I just get to be her handmaiden. Heartdwellers Ghana is an extention of Heartdwellers ministry by Mother Clare and Father Ezekiel from Still Small Voice Channel. Jesus has taught us about divine intimacy with him. As we dwell in his heart, He and the Father come to make their home within us. (John Where Jesus is all of heaven is as well because the kingom of God is within. So here may you come to get fresh manna from Jesus and any ther saints who may want to give us council, encouragment and exhortation that we may finish this race of faith and run to win the prize. To be a bride spotless, blameless adorened with purity, carying the fire of charity and zeal for our fathers glory. That we maybe ready for him when He comes back for us. Our Lord, Jesus Christ is amazing the intimate you become with him the more in awe he leaves you. I hope this blog draws you nearer to our Lord and you began to open the ears and the eyes of your heart to all that he has to say to you and show you. All of these messages are from Jesus with love...to you. May you be blessed by his words of life. God bless you!
