  1. Immaculate Conception Objectives Be able to correctly identify to what the Immaculate Conception refers Define protoevangellium Use typology and scripture to defend the doctrine that Mary was sinless

  2. Immaculate Conception • That Mary was preserved from: • Original sin • Condition we inherit from Adam • Actual sin • Always chose God’s will • Concupiscence • No attraction to evil or the pull of the flesh • Beginning with her conception in St. Ann’s womb • This doctrine concerning Mary points to JESUS!

  3. Protoevangellium • Literally = 1st Good News • Genesis 3:15 • “I will place enmity between you and the woman and between your offspring and hers.” • What does enmity mean? • Ill will, nothing in common; enemies • To what woman is God referring? • Who is the offspring of the serpent (the Devil)? • Who is the offspring of the woman? • Who, then, is the woman?

  4. New Testament • Luke 1:28 The angel Gabriel greets Mary as “full of grace” • Sin diminishes grace. • She cannot be simultaneously full of grace and a sinner.

  6. Mary and the Ark of the Covenant • How much effort and care did God put into the Ark? • It was going to carry the two stone tablets which were God’s word • What was Mary going to carry? • Would not God want to make her as “golden” and as perfect a vessel? • What would be more perfect than to be sinless?

  7. In Summary • God got to create His own mother • There is strong scriptural evidence that Mary was sinless • Jesus would take His human nature entirely from Mary • It is fitting that that nature never have been touched by sin

  8. Objections • St. Paul says all have sinned • Is this absolute? • Would it include babies who died ? • Mary refers to God as her savior • Mary redeemed in anticipation of the merits of her son. • So that Jesus was her redeemer as He is ours • Hers was a preservation rather than a remedy • Catholic saint objections? • Thomas Aquinas
