"Most Highly Favored Lady..."

First off for your feast of l'Immacolata -- patroness of these United States -- a fitting audial treat...

...and, along those lines, some news: for the first time ever, earlier today saw the declaration of a Marian apparition on these shores as "worthy of belief" -- the reported 1859 appearance of the Madonna at Champion, Wisconsin, just outside Green Bay.

That said (and sung), buona festa a tutti!
