In the December 31, 1951 message from the Lady of All Nations (Church approval May 31, 2002, see “Church Approves Apparitions of the Lady of All Nations,” Marian Private Revelation Category), Our Lady instructs theologians that she was “Co-redemptrix already at the beginning,” that it is time for the “new and last dogma in Marian history,” and offers prophetic messages regarding Russia, China, America and Europe. The Lady further proclaims, “this time is our time,” and calls for the prayer to be “spread in churches and through modern means of communication.” – Ed.
The Lady is there again. She looks at me with a smile, and she remains so for a long time. Then the Lady starts to speak, and she says, “Child, look carefully and listen to what I have come to tell you today. I am not bringing a new doctrine. The doctrine is good, but the laws…
The following article from MedjugorjeToday.com refers to Our Lady’s own explanation of her role as “Mediatrix” and makes clear heaven’s desire for this truth to be known and proclaimed worldwide – Ed.
“I desire to be the bond between you and the Heavenly Father – your mediatrix” the Virgin Mary tells visionary Mirjana Dragicevic-Soldo. Playing into the petitions for the Pope to declare Mary “Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix, Advocate” in a fifth and final Marian dogma, it is only the second time for 30 years of apparitions the word appears in a Medjugorje message. Proposers of a fifth Marian dogma to be declared by the Pope caught new wind on Sunday when the Virgin Mary made a rare mention of one of the three titles contained within the dogma, during her apparition to Medjugorje visionary Mirjana Dragicevic-Soldo.

On that historic day of February 11, 2013 when Pope Benedict announced his resignation, the Vatican gave public release to an official letter written by the Holy Father in which he made another historic contribution: this time in honor of his Mother.
In a Latin letter dated January 10, 2013, in which the Pope designates Archbishop Zygmunt Zimowski (President of the Pontifical Council for Health Pastoral Care) as his representative for the February 11 2013 World Day of the Sick Celebration, Benedict XVI invokes Mary as the “Mediatrix of all graces” (Mediatricis omnium gratiarum). In doing so, the Holy Father continues a consistent line of explicit papal teaching of this Marian doctrine which goes back for over two centuries.
It is significant that Pope Benedict’s reference to Mary as…

Mary Mediatrix of all Graces in the Pontifical Magisterium: From Benedict XIV to Benedict XVI
Mary’s universal mediation has been the object of the unchanging ordinary Papal Magisterium for at least the past three centuries and therefore must be considered Catholic doctrine, definitive tenenda, not dogmatically defined, but…
Message of St. Michael: The Mediatrix, through the Prayer of the Lady of All Nations, Will Crush the Head of Satan
Note: Mrs. Janie Garza, a visionary from Austin, Texas, has received permission from her last two local ordinaries to continue her ministry in regards to her messages from Jesus, Our Lady, St. Joseph, St. Philomena, and several saints and angels, inclusive of the Three Great Archangels, St. Michael, St. Gabriel, and St. Raphael. On Thursday, September 5, 2013, St. Michael conveyed a message regarding the importance of prayer and fasting to stave off war, and specified the power of Our Lady as Mediatrix, who will “crush the head of Satan” through the Prayer of the Lady of All Nations. We should all be daily praying the Prayer of the Lady of All Nations for peace in the Middle East and globally, and for the Proclamation of the Dogma of Mary, Co-redemptrix, Mediatrix, and Advocate. -Editor.
St. Michael: Behold, beloved of the Father, we, the Three Archangels bring you guidance from…
“Be it done unto me according to your word” (Lk. 1:38). Mary says “yes” to the Archangel Gabriel, and thus mediates to us the Redeemer to the world.
The role of the Blessed Virgin Mary as the “Mediatrix” cannot be separated from her prior role as the “Co-redemptrix.” When the Church teaches that Mary is the “Mediatrix of all graces” it refers to her spiritual role of distributing the graces of the Redemption to humanity. But this motherly role of dispensing the graces of the Redemption pre-supposes her role with Jesus in the obtaining of the graces of Redemption.
“Co-redemptrix” is a Marian title dating back to the 14th Century. Pope Pius XI called Mary the Co-redemptrix on three occasions, and Blessed John Paul II did so on at least six occasions. Co-redemptrix refers to Mary’s unique participation with Jesus in obtaining the graces of redemption for humanity’s salvation.
Mary helped Jesus…
Mary is our Coredemptrix with Jesus. She gave Jesus his body and suffered with him at the foot of the cross.
Mary is the Mediatrix of all grace. She gave Jesus to us, and as our Mother she obtains for us all his graces.
Mary is our Advocate who prays to Jesus for us. It is only through the Heart of Mary that we come to the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus.
The papal definition of Mary as Coredemptrix, Mediatrix, and Advocate will bring great graces to the Church.
All for Jesus through Mary.
God Bless you,
Mother Teresa of Calcutta
This article, which looks at the Marian dimension of John Paul II’s pontificate, elucidates his many beautiful and powerful words about Our Lady in her role as Coredemptrix and Mediatrix of All Graces. We are only now beginning to unravel the great teachings left us by our beloved Holy Father.

I. Introduction: The Post-Conciliar Situation
The Servant of God Pope John Paul II has left to the Church a huge body of Marian teaching, which, in its quantity alone, is greater than that of all of his predecessors and which, in its quality and consistency, I believe is his greatest single legacy to the Church. While various aspects of this…
