I’ve been teaching a class and when we were working through the Church’s teachings on Mary, we covered
- Mother of God
- Immaculate Conception
- Perpetual Virginity.
None of these imply a sinless Mary. One may argue sinlessness at birth (Immacualte Conception) and the time of the conception of Christ (full of grace). But …
Adam and Eve also were Immaculately Conceived, yet eventually sinned.
Mary suffered much during the passion (your soul a sword shall pierce) so may have had all temperal punishment due to any sins removed before the assumption.
So… does the Church teach a sinless Mary? Where?
