America’s Patron: Mary in Her Immaculate Conception

Good News meditation on Our Lady.
by Benjamin Cieply, LC | Source:
In the Constitution ‘Ineffabilis Deus’, December 8, 1854, Pius IX pronounced and defined that the Blessed Virgin Mary "in the first instance of her conception, by a singular privilege and grace granted by God, in view of the merits of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the human race, was preserved exempt from all stain of original sin."

In the United States of America this year we celebrate the 160th anniversary of a decree from the First Council of Baltimore electing Mary in her Immaculate Conception as our principal Patron. A patron is one who has been assigned, or in this case, chosen by election, as a special intercessor before God.

Not to boast, but as an American, I think we are pretty fortunate to have Mary as our patron saint. First of all, because the dogma of the Immaculate Conception confesses that the Blessed Virgin is preserved/free from any stain of sin – something that cannot be said of any other saint in history. In other words, when it comes to sanctity, Mary “takes the cake.”

How so? Steve Ray, a convert to Catholicism and a well-known apologist, explains it something like this:

If someone falls into a puddle, there are two ways to help him get the mud off: Either you hand him a towel, or you go back in time and, as he approaches the puddle, pick him up and place him on the other side. Only God can do it the second way. This is what he did with Mary!

Secondly, other than her unique holiness, we are honored to have Mary as our patron saint because she is the most powerful intercessor. St Louis de Montfort, in his renowned manuscript True Devotion to Mary, boldly suggests that Christ is weak in front of his Mother. It’s as if he can’t say “No” to her!

Indeed, the Catechism of the Catholic Church (969) states that the Blessed Virgin is invoked under the title Mediatrix of all grace. While no creature measures up to the one and only Redeemer, we profess that Mary cooperates in a unique way in her Son’s redemptive mission. She knows what is best for her children and so intercedes for us before the very source of all grace, Jesus Christ.

Yes, America, you are truly blessed; God, through the powerful intercession of Mary, the Immaculate Conception, has shed His grace on thee… May he continue to do so from sea to shining sea!

- Note: the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception is celebrated on December 8.

@Ben The Pope is the Vicar of Christ, which means representative. Why do you listen to your protestant pastor? Is he greater than God? If you despise the Catholic Church, why do you believe the Bible. The Biblw was created by the Catholic Church!

Why do you rely on the word of man instead of the Word of God? Is the pope a higher authority than God and His Word?
