Time for Pius IX, Feast of Immaculate Conception, iPieta and a nifty clock

What time is it? Seven past Pius X. What does this clock featuring all 12 Popes Pius have to do with the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary?

Dig through your iPieta app (one of our “must have” apps for your mobile device). Look under the “Veritas” tab. There you’ll find significant documents (in English) written by Popes Pius VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, XI and XII. There’s even an option for audio versions of Pope Pius IX’s documents. There you will find his Papal Bull, Ineffabilis Deus (1854), in which he confirmed the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception. So you can read it or listen to it. Cool.
