Roman Catholics around the world observe the annual feast of the Immaculate Conception today†– but many of them, and countless non-Catholics, mistakenly believe that the occasion is a celebration of the virgin†conception of Jesus.
Rather, the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception is the belief that the Blessed Virgin Mary was conceived in the womb of her mother, St. Anne, without original sin. (By the way, the Catholic Church holds that Mary’s conception was otherwise achieved in the usual way. Her father was St. Joachim.)
