God Granted Privileges and Prerogatives to Mary

God, who from all eternity regards Mary with a most favorable and unique affection, has "when the fullness of time came" (Gal 4:4) put the plan of his providence into effect in such a way that all the privileges and prerogatives he had granted to her in his sovereign generosity were to shine forth in her in a kind of perfect harmony. She, by an entirely unique privilege, completely overcame sin by her Immaculate Conception, and as a result she was not subject to the law of remaining in the corruption of the grave, and she did not have to wait until the end of time for the redemption of her body.
Pope Pius XII, Munificentissimus Deus #3,5, 1950
