Pope Quote Of The Week

Pope Blessed Pius IX

''We declare, pronounce and define that the doctrine which holds that the Blessed Virgin Mary, at the first instant of her conception, by a singular privilege and grace of the Omnipotent God, in virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ, the Saviour of mankind, was preserved immaculate from all stain of original sin, has been revealed by God, and therefore should firmly and constantly be believed by all the faithful''. Ineffabilis Deus.

Comment: Let us hasten to the most pure Mother of God, who crushed the head of the serpent through humility and obedience to God's decree. She is our powerful intercessor in Heaven as she is the one most conformed to the likeness of her Son, Jesus our Mediator. From all eternity, God planned to preserve His Mother from all stain of sin, of all impurity, a fitting terrestrial paradise where He could dwell at the fullness of time. May she stand beside all young men and women, as she stood by her beloved Son at the Cross, to guard them in chastity and continence.

It has been said that Satan fears Mary, our Queen more than God, as in his obstinate pride, he can not bear to be conquered by a humble woman.
