About the Feast of the Immaculate Conception

Many theologians, including St Thomas Aquinas, questioned the idea of Mary’s immaculate conception until Pope Pius IX proclaimed it to be an essential dogma in the Catholic Church on December 8, 1854. The written document on this is known as the Ineffabilis Deus. Since then, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception celebrates the belief that Mary was born without sin and that God chose her to be Jesus’ mother.
