and through Him, God's great gift to all mankind.

The One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, as led by the Bishop of Rome, successor to Peter, the first Pope, has always venerated the Blessed Virgin Mary including her sinlessness; for The Church follows Scripture - especially the New Testament which She, Herself,  compiled - as perfectly as She follows Her Tradition -

For behold, henceforth all generations
shall call me blessed.  Luke 1:48.

To Mary, The Woman of Scripture and Mother .. of the men who keep God's commandments and hold fast to the truth concerning Jesus. Rev. 12:17., The Church applies the beautiful words of Wisdom 7:26:-

It was at Lourdes that Mary named herself
