Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception

The solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, truly full of grace and blessed among women, preserved at very first moment of her conception from the stain of original sin through the foreseen appearance and saving death of the Son of God by a singular privilege of God, which was solemnly defined on this very day by Pope Pius IX as a fixed dogma handed down in truth from ancient times. -- USCCB website

Holy Immaculate Mary, Thrice-Blessed Ever-Virgin Mother of God, pray for us wretches!!!

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
