Hi, guys —
I am a senior in high school and I'm considering
making the conversion to Catholicism.
I was raised Methodist, although not strictly.
In the last few years, I have explored many
spiritual paths in an attempt to find my calling,
and I believe I have found it in the Catholic
I have only one question about the Virgin
Mary was free of original sin in order to
be suitable to carry Jesus.
If God could stop the ancestral passing
of original sin onto Mary, even though she
was born of parents with original sin,
why couldn't He have just protected Christ
in the womb in the same way, without making
Mary free of original sin?
