The Meaning of the Immaculate Conception
For many Protestants, the Immaculate Conception is the most contested of the Marian dogmas. Yet there is ample Biblical and historical evidence to support the teaching that Mary was conceived without sin. Tim Staples joins us to present the defense of this dogma.
Tim converted to Catholicism in 1988 and spent the following six years in formation for the priesthood, earning a degree in philosophy from St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Overbrook, Pennsylvania. He then studied theology on a graduate level at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary in Emmitsburg, Maryland, for two years. Realizing that his calling was not to the priesthood, Tim left the seminary in 1994 and has been working in Catholic apologetics and evangelization ever since.
