The Holy Father performs the annual veneration of the Immaculate Conception

  • Written by:
  • 1 Reply

In keeping with the tradition, Pope Francis performed the annual veneration of the Blessed Virgin Mary on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, held at the Spanish Steps in the heart of Rome.

Pope Francis prayed that through the maternal care of the Blessed Virgin, Christians may recognize the victory of God’s divine mercy over sin.

“Today, here in the heart of Rome, we hear the voice of our mother who calls everyone toward that Door, which represents Christ,” the prayer reads.

“You say to all: ‘Come, confident approach; revenue and receive the gift of Mercy; do not be afraid, do not be ashamed: Father is waiting for you with open arms to give you his forgiveness and welcome in her home.’”

This prayer was followed by the Litany of the Blessed Virgin.
