Mary veneration – JAM

Pilgrims crawl up the steps and into the Church of the Virgin de lo Vasquez, located northwest of Santiago, Chile. The pilgrimage is part of the Feast of Immaculate Conception and Mary worship. The doctrine says that in order for Jesus to be born without sin, it was necessary that Mary’s conception be immaculate. Thus on December 8th 1854 Pope Pius the 9th declared Mary’s immaculate conception church dogma. The Bible clearly teaches the virgin birth of Jesus but is silent concerning Mary’s conception. As for Mary veneration, it says, “You shall worship the Lord your God and Him only.” This is Just-A-Minute with Ed Boggess
