Immaculate Conception Coloring Sheet

Alright everyone, here comes my coloring sheet debut! The first coloring sheet I’ve ever drawn is (drum roll please)… The Immaculate Conception! The Feast of the Immaculate Conception is coming up on December 8.

I’m hoping for this coloring sheet to convey the message that this day is celebrating the conception of Mary herself, and not her conception of Jesus. This is a very common misconception amongst Catholics, but I think this depiction will help children to understand.

Symbolism in this picture includes Mary in the womb of St. Anne (wearing her defining veil). St. Anne and Mary both have their backs turned towards the apple tree to visually state that Mary was conceived without original sin. There are 3 beams of light coming down from the sun that stand for the trinity. Also, the snake (Satan) is unhappy about what has happened here. Here’s an example of this sheet already colored in:
