Feast of the Immaculate Conception!

Today celebrates the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin, as well as commemorates the day that Pope Pius IX pronounced and defined this doctrine.

"The Blessed Virgin Mary in the first instance of her conception, by a singular privilege and grace granted by God, in view of the merits of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the human race, was preserved exempt from all stain of original sin."

Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee!
