The Immaculate Conception

There are many resources that explain the validity of the Immaculate Conception. Let’s take that one step further. After we accept this truth, how does it benefit our walk with the Lord? Listen as Richaél Lucero covers this along with how the celebration of the Immaculate Conception fits perfectly within the Advent season.

A Note from the host: This episode was first released in December 2019. It’s contents and message are still relevant today. I also find it interesting to re-listen to it again one year later. I see how I’ve changed, grown, and where I’m stuck as different pieces stick out, strike me deeper, and point out where I still need to invite the Lord in. If this is your second time listening, I hope you can identify the same things in yourself. Cheers, Richaél

The most Blessed Virgin Mary was, from the first moment of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege of almighty God and by virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ,Savior of the human race, preserved immune from all stain of original sin.

Pope Pius IX, CCC 491

“Being obedient she became the cause of salvation for herself and for the whole human race.” Hence not a few of the early Fathers gladly assert. . .: “The knot of Eve’s disobedience was untied by Mary’s obedience: what the virgin Eve bound through her disbelief, Mary loosened by her faith.” Comparing her with Eve, they call Mary “the Mother of the living” and frequently claim: “Death through Eve, life through Mary.”

St. Irenaeus, CCC 494
