Today on Kresta - December 8, 2010

Talking about the "things that matter most" on Dec. 8

4:00–6:00: The Feast of the Immaculate Conception
In the Constitution Ineffabilis Deus of 8 December, 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 Saviour of the human race, was preserved exempt from all stain of original sin." Al dedicates today as a special program to discuss the dogma of the Immaculate Conception.

  1. Al, 1854 is not all that long ago (in terms of the scope of church history). Any thoughts on why the Catholic Church waited to declare it formal dogma?
