“Do Fight and Ask for this Dogma”

In the April 4, 1954 message of the Lady of All Nations (ecclesiastical approval, May 31, 2002, see “Church Approves Apparitions of the Lady of All Nations” article), Our Lady makes a serious comment to theologians by stating, “from the outset the Handmaid of the Lord was chosen to be Co-redemptrix.

Tell your theologians that they can find it in all their books!” The Mother then offers further explanation of her roles of Co-redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate, establishing the foundation of these roles in her Immaculate Conception. In addition, she challenges theologians: “Theologians, I ask you, do you still have objections to this dogma?… I ask you to work for this dogma… do fight and ask for this dogma: it is the crowning of your Lady!” – Ed.

I see the Lady standing with a serious look on Her face. She says to me, “Once more I am here. Listen…

Virginitas in Partu in the First Phase of the Vatican Council II

Fr. Felix Lopez has provided an  outstanding theological documentation and commentary on the proper understanding of Our Lady’s Virginity during the Birth of Jesus as treated in  the proceedings of the Second Vatican Council.  Fr. Lopez’s monumental contribution illustrates that the Council’s discussion and outcome of the subject reflects the Traditional understanding since the fourth century that Our Lady experienced no violation of her physical virginity in giving birth to Jesus, which also presupposes the miraculous birth of Jesus, another essential component of the Church’s Tradition on the issue – Ed.

Introduction

Mary’s virginitas in partu is a truth of faith that has become subject to debate in certain theological ambits, especially in the second half of the 20th century. References to this detail of faith is to be found in the first centuries of Christianity. 1 It is a fact that Tertulian, in his battle against the Valentinians, clearly denied…

In May 2001 Pope John Paul II called to Rome the cardinals of the world in a special consistory seeking to implement the pastoral directives for the new millennium as contained in his papal document Novo Millennio Ineunte (At the Beginning of the Third Millennium).

On the first day of the consistory, as the third official presenter to the College of Cardinals and in the presence of Pope John Paul II, His Eminence, Luis Cardinal Aponte Martínez, Archbishop of Puerto Rico, offered to the consistory the following presentation concerning the decisive role of the Mother of All Peoples in the imperative of the New Evangelization for the third millennium.

Your Holiness and my dear Brother Cardinals,

The Pope of Mary Co-redemptrix

In light of the upcoming canonization of John Paul II we would like to highlight his teachings on Mary Co-Redemptrix. This article shows how he has prepared the Mariological Foundations for the Fifth Marian Dogma. -Asst. Editor

In witnessing to most every aspect of the story of Mary Co-redemptrix, John Paul II, the “Totus Tuus” Pope, exceeded all papal predecessors. The quantity of such testimonies is vast; their depth profound; their love inspired.

Message of our Lady, Queen of Peace at Medjugorje February 25, 2014

“Dear children! You see, hear and feel that in the hearts of many people there is no God. They do not want Him, because they are far from prayer and do not have peace. You, little children, pray – live God’s commandments. You be prayer, you who from the very beginning said `yes` to my call. Witness God and my presence and do not forget, little children: I am with you and I love you. From day to day I present you all to my Son Jesus. Thank you for having responded to my call. ”

Jesus

I want to talk to souls about love of neighbor. My children, people are precious. Each and every person on this earth is of infinite value to Me and to My heavenly plan. But often the value is overlooked because of a worldly view of life. If I have placed a person on your earth, I intend that the person be adequately fed. You must proceed from…
