One of the titles of the Virgin Mary is vessel of honor. Please explain vessel of honor in regards to Mary.

Depending on the translation, in 2 Tim 2:21, Paul calls all of us to be vessels of honor.

In Mary's case, when she was declared to have been conceived without the stain of original sin, it was stated that, "so completely free from all taint of original sin that she would triumph utterly over the ancient serpent". She didn't have to be free from o.s., but in order to fulfill Gen. 3:15, in which the seed of the woman would crush the head of the serpent, God willed that she be perfected in grace (kecharitomene). She was conceived in the same state of grace as Adam & Eve were created. She undid what they did.
