Happy Feast of Our Lady’s Immaculate Conception

Happy Feast of Our Lady’s Immaculate Conception

From the YouTube Platform…

Dr. Taylor Marshall explains the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception of Mary (that she was freed from original sin at her conception) from the Bible using 4 Scriptural arguments.

Editor writes…

As with all Feast Day threads, discuss any relevant issues, and share your favourite hymns and prayers.

Please, also, remember in your prayers today, the friend I mentioned recently who has been diagnosed with cancer, and who is now undergoing treatment. O Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.

Thank you – and a very happy Feast, everyone!

    Dr Taylor Marshall explains the scriptural roots of this doctrine very well, in his video above. I just wish the people who make these videos wouldn’t keep saying “like, subscribe” etc. Apart from that, though, I found it really helpful.

    I wish everyone a very happy Feast of the Immaculate Conception today.

      I agree about the “like” and “subscribe” on these videos – I was just thinking how lovely Marshall’s video was, when he said that again, having said it at the start. I wish they would stop it. We all know the routine right now. I could say the same about his “if you don’t say the rosary every day, you’re not on the team”! It made me smile at the beginning but it’s wearing thin a bit now!

    Happy Feast to all at Catholic Truth Scotland!

    My prayers are promised for the friend undergoing cancer treatment. That’s not pleasant.

    I also meant to promise my prayers for the person, friend of Editor, who is undergoing cancer treatment. That is a cross to carry, and just before Christmas too. This is a wonderful Feast to ask for special help on, especially using the prayer for this doctrine, “O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.”

    I will also remember to pray for the friend who is getting treatment for cancer. That miracle is still in my daily prayers, and today’s feast is a great day to ask Our Lady again.

    Here is something else worth praying about – the possibility of another conclave in the new year.

    Pope Pius IX proclaimed the Dogma of the Immaculate Conception in 1854, and, Our Lady appeared to Saint Bernadette in Lourdes, 18 times in 1858 and confirmed the title, telling Bernadette “I am the Immaculate Conception. Since that time due to Bernadette following Our Lady’s instructions, many people have been cured of many serious illnesses in the miraculous waters.

    A Happy Feast Day everyone.

    It is on days like this that you realise just how far the Church has deteriorated From days off school for the Holy day of obligation to a situation where most Catholics now couldn`t tell you what feast day it was even if their lives depended on it.

    I would say that, arguably, the rot was well and truly hastened when Holy days of obligation were conveniently getting manipulated for no other reason than to stop them altogether. You see; our “separated brethren” didn`t have anything similar so we had to get rid of them in case we would upset them.

    What was the procedure again? If a feast day landed within a fortnight of a Sunday, you had to forget about it but if it landed on a Monday, you had to wear a mask when eating. I know that is only a rough guess but it is not far off.

    I tried to find the hymn usually sung on this Feast (Immaculate Mary, our hearts are on fire) and I discovered that most of the videos on YouTube have completely different words and tune, being American. Lovely, all the same. This short clip is a version of the hymn we normally sing, same tune, but not the same words. It’s posted anyway in honour of Our Lady on this great Feast. Enjoy!

    Dr Taylor Marshall gave an excellent explanation from the bible of the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception and in this video he shows how wrong Pope Francis was in 2018 when he denied the doctrine. It’s interesting that in this video Dr Taylor Marshall seems to be actually doubting that Pope Francis’ right to the papacy. I know we can’t decide that, and I’m not doing that but I’ve never heard Marshall sounding that note, so I am only mentioning it.

    Many thanks to everyone who contributed to this tribute to Our Lady today.

    I’ll now close the thread to comments, with a promise to view all the videos posted asap. All look very interesting!

    God bless.
