The Blessed Mother was conceived free from original sin by virtue of the merits of her son Jesus Christ, and the Catholic Church teaches that God acted upon Mary in the first moment of her conception keeping her “immaculate”. The doctrine is a dogma since Pope Pius IX defined it in 1854, and the Catholic Church celebrates the Feast of the Immaculate Conception on December 8. Let us salute the Immaculate Mary, born on August 5 per her own admission, praying a “Hail Mary”. I was also born on August 5 and I’m sending my deepest appreciation to all readers who are congratulating me on my 64th birthday.
The future Pope Peter II will also define The Fifth Marian Dogma of Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate, in Manila, The Philippines. Click on the following link to retrieve the article Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate.
