But what is the Immaculate Conception holiday?
The Immaculate Conception is a Catholic dogma proclaimed by Pope Pius IX on December 8, 1854, in which it is confirmed that the Virgin Mary was preserved from the original sin from the first moment of its conception. The dogma of the Immaculate Conception refers to the original sin and not the virginal conception of Jesus by Mary. For the Catholic Church every human being is born with original sin with the exception of the Mother of Christ, the Virgin was to be the abode without sin to have in her perfect lap the Son of God made man.
