Feast of the Immaculate Conception: As a holy day of obligation, Catholics celebrate that Mary was conceived without original sin so that she could one day conceive Jesus.


"The most Blessed Virgin Mary was, from the first moment of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege of almighty God and by virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ, Savior of the human race, preserved immune from all stain of original sin.” - Pius IX, Ineffabilis Deus, 1854.
