Deep Dark Fears

HARK the Angel Herald Sings

*heh* The Obama thing was a nice touch.
Okay, way I unnerstand it, Mary was sinless, not perfect. Mary had to be sinless despite original sin (immaculate conception) to avoid the Jewish concept of uncleanliness during childbirth, which would contaminate baby Jesus and negate His "perfection."
Could be wrong, prob'ly am.
Sorry, didn't mean to ruin the joke.

No problem Doug. The Immac. Conc. refers to Mary being born without the stain of Original Sin and is maybe the most misunderstood (even by Catholics) of the Church's doctrines.

As a believer I was taught that Mary was blessed but not sinless and that the sin nature is passed down through the father. Hence, only Christ was sinless and therefore the only propitiation or suitable sacrifice. And I'm really not trying to start an argument.

Mary's Immaculate Conception - via EWTN

As the Sgt. said when the nun were trying to explain the immaculate conception during his conversion to the Catholic faith, " It seems like it was quicker for God to do it than it is for the Church to explain it?"
