It is further believed that she lived a life completely free from sin. Her immaculate conception in the womb of her mother, by normal sexual intercourse (Christian tradition identifies her parents as Sts.Joachim and Anne), should not be confused with the doctrine of the virginal conception of her sonJesus.
