The Immaculate Conception

“It is difficult for me to comprehend a person who understands the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception and yet objects to it.  Does not the objector consider that Eve was created without original sin?  Does not he believe that St. John Baptist had the grace of God even before his birth?  What do we believe of Mary, but that grace was given to her from the first moment of her existence?

We do not say that she did not owe her salvation to the death of her Son.   We say that she is the fruit of His Passion.”

–The Blessed John Henry Newman, Lead Kindly Light
