In anticipation that she was to bear the Son of God, Mary was preserved from the time of her conception from Original Sin.  We call this the Immaculate Conception.  No sin would touch her, so that she would be a fitting and worthy vessel of the Son of God.  The Immaculate Conception does not refer to the virginal conception and birth of Christ, but rather to Mary’s being conceived without inheriting Original Sin.
