- the Virginity of Jesus and Mary - “God desired that the Virginity of Mary, the Mother of Jesus Christ, be so perfect, complete, and all-encompassing that even the manner of her Immaculate Conception was required by God to be entirely Virginal, occurring solely and entirely by a miracle of God and not in the usual way. Therefore, solely by means of a most wonderful and singular miracle of God, the Virgin Mary was conceived of both her parents, Saint Joachim and Saint Ann, without sexual union and within their complete purity of body, heart, mind, and soul.”
- Original Sin and the Immaculate Conception - “The Immaculate Conception is the preservation of the Virgin Mary from all three aspects of original sin. Original sin is like a negative image of the Trinity. The Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary is like a negative image of original sin. Therefore, the Immaculate Conception is a reflection of the Most Holy Trinity, and must be three-fold. The Immaculate Conception is usually explained as an absence of original sin, but original sin is itself a kind of negative or absence. The Immaculate Conception can also be explained in positive terms, as one gift with three aspects,-a reflection of the Three Persons of the One Holy Trinity. Original sin is one defect with three aspects. The Immaculate Conception is one gift with three aspects. Each of the aspects of the Immaculate Conception is opposed to a corresponding defect of original sin.”
- John the Baptist Never Sinned - “John the Baptist remained completely free from all personal sin, throughout his whole life, by means of the grace and redemption which came to him from Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Of all those persons with original sin, none is, nor ever will be, greater than John the Baptist, not even the holiest of canonized Saints, because, by grace of the Holy Spirit, John never committed the least personal sin whatsoever.”
- Saint Joseph Never Sinned - “Saint Joseph, though he is one of the holiest of the Saints, and though he committed no personal sins at all throughout his entire life, still he had the weaknesses and imperfections which accompany those who are conceived and afflicted with original sin. Even after his sanctification within the womb, the remnant of original sin remained with Joseph, just as it remains with us, after our sanctification in baptism. Mary had no personal sin, no original sin, and no imperfection. Joseph had no personal sin, but he did have original sin and imperfection.”
Red highlights are mine. Is this really what our Church teaches? I found it on a Catholic site.
