Feast of the Immaculate Conception
The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, also called Immaculate Conception Day, celebrates the sinless lifespan and Immaculate Conception
of the Virgin Mary, celebrated on December 8, nine months before the feast
of the Nativity of Mary, celebrated on September 8. It is one of the most
important Marian feasts in the liturgical calendar of the Roman Catholic
Church celebrated worldwide. By Pontifical decree, it is the patronal feast
day of Argentina, Brazil, Italy, Korea, Nicaragua, Paraguay, the
Philippines, Spain, the United States, and Uruguay. By royal decree, it is
designated as the day honoring the patroness of Portugal. It is celebrated
by the Roman Catholic Church and some select Protestant Christian
denominations. Since 1953, the Pope visits the Column of the Immaculate
Conception in the Piazza di Spagna to offer expiatory prayers commemorating
the solemn event.
