December 8, 2010 will be the 156th Anniversary of Ineffabilis Deus; the Papal document that raised the Immaculate Conception to the status of formal doctrine. Often confused with the Virgin Birth, this program explains that the Immaculate Conception is not about Jesus, but is the story of how Mary was conceived in the womb of her mother, St. Anne, without the stain of Original Sin.
This is also the story of one Bishop (St. Eugene DeMazenod) who attended the Vatican Assemblies prior to Pope Pius IX¹s document and what the belief in Mary¹s Immaculate Conception meant to him and the religious order he founded: the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate. Ages 12 through adult 17 min.
