WHAT DOES IMMACULATE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

immaculate

Immaculate Conception

The Immaculate Conception is, according to the teaching of the Catholic Church, the unique privilege by which, when the Blessed Virgin Mary was conceived in her mother's womb, she was kept free of original sin through the anticipated merits of Jesus Christ. The teaching about her immaculate conception is a dogma of the Church and her immaculate conception itself is celebrated with an annual feast day. The doctrine of the immaculate conception of Mary concerns her own conception in her mother's womb, not Mary's conception of Jesus nor the perpetual virginity of Mary. Although the belief that Mary was sinless and conceived immaculate was widely held since at least Late Antiquity, the doctrine was not dogmatically defined until December 8, 1854, by Pope Pius IX in his papal bull Ineffabilis Deus. The Feast of the Immaculate Conception is observed on December 8 in many Catholic countries as a holy day of obligation or patronal feast, and in some as a national public holiday. Because of the belief that she was immaculately conceived, Mary is referred to as the Immaculata.
