2020 12 ImmConMurillo


"We declare, pronounce, and define that the doctrine which asserts that the Blessed Virgin Mary, from the first moment of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege of almighty God, and in view of the merits of Jesus Christ, Savior of the human race, was preserved free from every stain of Original Sin, is a doctrine revealed by God and, for this reason, must be firmly and constantly believed by all the faithful."

Ineffabilis Deus, Bl. Pope Pius IX

Each year on the feast of the Immaculate Conception, the Prior General of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest solemnly consecrates our entire spiritual family to Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, our Patroness and Queen. All that we have and all that we are, we offer it to our Blessed Mother and ask her to protect us, guide us, pray for us, and protect us that we may be faithful to her Divine Son, Jesus Christ our God and King.

2020 12 Immaculate

To prepare for this great day, all of the canons, oblates, sisters, seminarians, and faithful from all of the Institute's apostolates worldwide unite in a solemn novena beginning on November 30 and concluding with the feast of the Immaculate Conception on December 8. Please join us in this novena by praying with us each day:

O most Holy Virgin, who was pleasing to God and did become His Mother, Immaculate in thy body, in thy soul, in thy faith, and in thy love, we beseech thee to look graciously upon the wretched who implore thy powerful protection. The wicked serpent, against whom the primal curse was hurled, continues nonetheless to wage war and to lay snares for the unhappy children of Eve. Ah, do thou, our Blessed Mother, our Queen and our Advocate, who from the first instant of thy conception, did crush the head of our enemy, receive the prayers that we unite single-heartedly to thine, and conjure thee to offer at the throne of God, that we may never fall into the snares that are laid for us, in such wise that we may all come to the haven of salvation, and in the midst of so many dangers, may Holy Church and the fellowship off Christians everywhere sing once more the hymn of deliverance, victory, and peace. Amen.

 O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee!
