December Honors Mary
O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.
Celebrate the Marian Feast of the Immaculate Conception with Catholic printables that can help you teach about this wonderful revealed truth.
In 1854, Pope Pius IX declared that the Blessed Virgin Mary was preserved from the stains of Original Sin as a privilege from God. What a most fitting gift for Mary, the woman who was to become the mother of our Lord!
Like us, Mary was redeemed by the Precious Blood of Christ. However, God the Father in His infinite wisdom and charity preserved Mary from incurring original sin rather than freeing her from it afterwards.
