Yesterday, as I returned from a pleasant walk, I passed a church. No doubt it was a strait--forward church much like the one I go to; but I started musing about their name on their banner: "The Immaculate conception of Mary". This means (according to Wikipedia) that she was free from "Original Sin", an attribute set up by God, that that would enter Adam and Eve if the ate a certain nice-looking Fruit. (We know what happened). We have a long way from the Adam story to Jesus. Now an even greater step: understanding how to maintain and fructify our plaint, for us and for all creatures.
