Catholic ABC’s Week: 14
Letter of the week: I
Theme: Immaculate Conception
Saint of the Week: St. Ignatius
Craft: Immaculate Conception Coloring Page
This Immaculate Conception coloring sheet was drawn by me last year. It is designed to help children (and all Catholics for that matter) understand that the Immaculate Conception refers to Mary being conceived without original sin; it is not referring to when Mary conceived Jesus.
Symbolism in this picture includes Maryin the womb of St. Anne (wearing her signature veil). St. Anne and Maryboth have their backs turned towards the apple tree to visually statethat Mary was conceived without original sin. There are 3 beams oflight coming down from the sun that stand for the trinity. Also, thesnake (Satan) is unhappy about what has happened here.
