Immaculate Conception Evening 2021
The reading of the introduction of this encyclical for the proclamation of the dogma that Our Lady was preserved free from original sin is doctrinal and devotional. Listening to the words of the proclamation is awe inspiring. The Blessed Mother had to be created as a worthy mother for a worthy Son. For this reason, authors say that God could have a created a better world but not a better Mother for His Son. This privilege elevates the Blessed Mother to a status far superior to all the saints and angels combined.
