12.8.17. Day of the Immaculate Conception. This is the Catholic doctrine of the purity of Mary from the moment of her conception. She was not born with original sin.
—
Anddd a little art history! This painting is by Domenico Tiepolo from 1775 of the Immaculate Conception. —
It’s a Holy Day of obligation so we’re headed to 7pm mass @oviedocatholic ✝️⛪️ It’s also a national “test out a veil day” & as a recent veiled woman at mass I will certainly be representing! See my blog post on the Immaculate Conception & Veiling!

ADVENT. Aloysius Coogan. Spiritual Steps to Christmas, 1953. "Christmas is the Feast of the Home." Monsignor Coogan's meditations and prayers contemplate the domestic nature of Christmas (he dedicates the book to the Holy Family) and stress the penitential aspects of our preparations. #advent #waitingforgod #prayer #penance #theholyfamily #giftbooks #tradition #heritageoffaith #giftwrappedforchristmas #firstedition #cardinalspellmanimprimataur #catholic #christmasbooks #keeperofbooks

Malcolm Muggeridge. Something Beautiful for God: Mother Teresa of Calcutta, 1971. Based on the BBC documentary, this portrait of Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity was a pivotal moment in Muggeridge's journey from atheism to Catholicism. #saints #loveinaction #catholicbooks #venerationofthesaints #missionary #booksareart #librorumhelluo #peopleofgod #saintsinourmidst

HOPE. Chiara Lubich. That All Men Be One, 1969. A bright and fresh first edition of Chiara Lubich's account of the origins and spread of the Focolare Movement, begun by a small group of girls in the midst of war-torn Trentino. An excellent gift for a discerning young person. #christianwitness #jesusinourmidst #greatgiftbook #ecumenism #focolaremovement #chiaralubich #catholicculture #womenofthechurch #laypeople #solidarity #newcity #advent

ADVENT. The Days of Christ's Coming, 1953. I was delighted this weekend at the arrival of a beautiful mid-century ADVENT CALENDAR, a collaboration between Dorothy L. Sayers (words) and Fritz Wegner (picture). This is a photo of the illustrated front wrapper. Now in cataloguing/photography so stay tuned for details. #anglocatholic #greatgift #adventcalendar #atthesignofthestar #anglocatholicadvent #catholicculture

Jacques Maritain. The Social and Political Philosophy of Jacques Maritain, 1965. This pristine paperback edition collecting the work of the great philosopher was edited at Notre Dame's Jacques Maritain Center and published by Image Books, the Doubleday imprint devoted to Catholic classics (with its distinctive Orb and Cross logo). A thoughtful gift for the Catholic philosopher in your family. #catholicbooks #catholicculture #catholicamerica #giftbooks #giftwrap #keeperofbooks #librorumhelluo #orbandcross #jacquesmaritain #thomist #catholicphilosophy #catholicsweread #catholicintellectualtradition #philosophy #finebooks #collectingcatholicbooks #thomism #advent #bookstheyrewhatsforchristmas

It’s the First Sunday of Advent! I spent years in search of the perfect #adventwreath and last year I gave up and just made my own. I’m not crafty but I think I did a-ok. 👌🏽 Ready to use it again tonight for the lighting of the first candle. ✝️❤️ 🎄 Check out the link in my bio for my blog post about Catholic advent. #ontheblog

Blaise Pascal. Les Provinciales: Or, The Mysterie of Jesuitisme, 1657. Magnificent first edition in English of Pascal's "Jesuit Letters." This copy resplendent in a 19th century Parisian gilt morocco binding. Throwback to December 2016: I sold this copy last year to a great client and I (almost) hated to see it go. #jansenism #societyofjesus #booksareart #jansenist #blaisepascal #orthodoxy #librorumhelluo #collectingcatholicbooks #firstedition #bookstagram #heritageoffaith #finebooks #finebinding #mandorla #frenchbinding
