The Immaculate Conception by Murillo, 1660, Museo del Prado, Spain. The Feast of the Immaculate Conception celebrates the conception of Mary, Mother of God. She was concieved without ant stain of origional sin. Catholics are not the only ones who celebrate Mary’s purity; the Islamic tradition recognises Mary’s spotlessness in the Qur’an.

The Miraculous Medal is also known as the Medal of the Immaculate Conception. It was manifested by Saint Catherine Labouré, after instructions from the Virgin Mary in a vision. When the Miraculous Medal came into circulation, healings and blessings were attributed to it.

Why not pray the rosary today, or sing your favourite Marian hymn…
