Here’s a text I got from a friend yesterday:

“Okay, also, how is the Holy Spirit the uncreated Immaculate Conception, as Maximilian Kolbe says? Any good ideas on explaining it?”


My reply:
“Yes it’s because the Holy Spirit proceeds in eternity (not time) from the Father and the Son that one can even use the term ‘ETERNAL Immaculate Conception’ but one has to be very careful to extricate any sense of sex or time from it, since it’s spiritual, there’s no genders involved and the spiration of the Holy Spirit is in eternity (‘Spiration’ is the old school way to describe how the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son.) Now get this: Mary is the TEMPORAL Immaculate Conception. That’s why she didn’t say at Lourdes to St. Bernadette “I am immaculately conceived” but why she said “I am the Immaculate Conception.” All of this supports the classic teaching that the Holy Spirit is the spouse of the soul of the Blessed Virgin Mary: And spouses share the same last name, namely, Immaculate Conception!!!”
