In this special episode, Ann is joined by philosophy Professor Luca Gili of for a FASCINATING discussion of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and St. Thomas Aquinas’ often misunderstood and maliciously misrepresented writings on this wonderful dogma. If you love Our Lady, and love science, this episode will be “just too cool.”

“We declare, pronounce, and define that the doctrine which holds that the most Blessed Virgin Mary, in the first instance of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege granted by Almighty God, in view of the merits of Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the human race, was preserved free from all stain of original sin, is a doctrine revealed by God and therefore to be believed firmly and constantly by all the faithful.”
(Pope Pius IX, Ineffabilis Deus, 1854)
