The Push By Rome To Make Mary A Part Of The Godheadt – The Great Idolatrous Usurpation


Dr. Ian R. K. Paisley

The following two articles in the Catholic Herald 19/7/02 are very revealing. The battle is on to make Mary one of the Godhead as the Mediatress of all Graces.

These articles should be read carefully for all those who want to be informed about the way the Church of Rome is going.

The significance that the first book to be published by Dr Williams the new Archbishop of Canterbury is an advocacy and defence of the veneration of Mary is not to be overlooked in this movement of Rome.

This march to the further apostasy of the Great Babylon is startling.

It is a warning to all Bible Believers of the real nature of the system of the Antichrist of Rome.

Gods people need to pray and pray for those deluded by the darkness of Rome may be brought to the freedom of pardon by grace alone, through faith alone in Christ alone.

The message of the Apostle Peter is our message to the whole world.

Acts 4:12 : Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

What is the relevance of the doctrine of Mary the coredeemer?

Fr Peter Fehlner shows how Vatican II teaches that Mary is Mediatress of all graces.

Over the past 10 years, unpredictably in terms of earlier prognostications about theological issues to be "on the cutting edge" in the new millennium, the Catholic doctrine of Marian coredemption has occupied the rapt attention – enthusiastic on the part of supporters, violent on the part of opponents – pro or con, all convinced the issue is not only important, but "the issue".

Dr. Miravalle’s Vox Populi Mariae Mediatrici movement has presented over five million signatures to the Holy See humbly requesting a solemn definition of the Marian titles Coredemptress, Mediatress or all graces and Advocate. A third of the cardinals and over a quarter of the Catholic episcopate have signed the petitions.

Nonetheless, the initial response of most Catholics to the question: "would you give up a Bank Holiday to learn a bit more during the Third International Symposium on Marian Coredemption about this hotly debated theme and why it is so hotly debated by those who grasp its significance?." Probably will be a negative.

The response is understandable. Are not such questions primarily the concern of professional theologians? It is commonly reported that this is the mind of the Holy Father. Besides, leading theologians have stated publicly that the so-called coredemptive doctrine is "old-fashioned" theology, out of step with that appropriate to the post-conciliarera and a serious block to further ecumenical progress.

True, such issues are, or should be, the primary concern of theologians, but not exclusively so. Even before the theologians they are the primary concern of the whole church. The common report about the Holy Father is, to put it mildly, based on a faulty interpretation of a very debatable 1997 article in L’Osservatore Romano about the problems inherent in the notion or Marian coredemption. The present Holy Father since the beginning of his pontificate has, like his immediate predecessors in the See of Peter, often taught the doctrine of Marian coredemption, and is the first Pope since Pius XI to employ the title Coredemptress in public addresses, where he has used it at least six times.

A far more accurate index of his views than the Osservatore Romano article is the recent publication by the Vatican Press of the latest book by Sr Lucy, last surviving Fatima Seer: "Calls" from the Message of Fatima. The title Coredemptress is frequently employed (notwithstanding the warnings of the 1997 article on the L’Osservatore) and the doctrine of Marian coredempetion effectively is presented as central to the message of Fatima and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart.

Early in June, moreover, the Bishop of Haarlem, Msgr. Punt, approved the supernatural authenticity of the revelations of Our Lady to Ida Peerdeman of Amsterdam. Central to these revelations is Our Lady’s request that there be a solemn dogmatic definition of her titles Coredemptress, Mediatress of All Graces, Advocate.

For those who think that the real goals intended by the Holy Spirit at Vatican II have been realised without the promotion of the mystery of coredemption and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart, there remains the stark reality of the religious crisis throughout the Church, the persistent scandals and the tragic breakdown of morals, culture and civilisation worldwide. The message of Fatima, and so many other Church-approved revelations of Jesus and Mary is clear: the crisis will continue until Our Lady is acknowledged.

That is not merely the burden of so many contemporary private revelations. It is substantially the teaching of Vatican II. At the centre of the Council teaching is the mystery of the Church and the renewal of the Church, a renewal needed in part to counter the inroads of secularism, and even more to take advantage of present opportunities to advance the kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

And the key to the realisation of both goals, according to the Council, is the mystery of Mary in Christ and in the Church: in the Church because in Christ, Mother of the Church because Mother of God. The Council thus defines Mary as the link between Head and Body of the Church. Another word for this (in fact used by the Council) is Mediatress, which unraveled becomes Coredemptress, Mediatress of All Graces, Advocate. If the key is used, the door will be opened to stupendous, unheard of blessings for the Church and mankind. If it is not used (and so far except for a relatively small number of persons it has not been used), the situation of the Church and of mankind will progressively worsen.

In a word, there is, according to the Council, nothing antiquated about the doctrine. And even if for various practical reasons the Council abstained for the moment in using the title Coredemptress expressly, Pope Paul VI and the present Pontiff make it abundantly clear that nothing better could happen to the ecumenical movement than the promotion of Mary, Mother of the Church, as its very heart, since she is the key to its final success.

This is why Pope Paul VI calls Mary in his Apostolic Exhortation Marialis Cultus, Mother of Unity. This is why John Paul II, in the Encyclical Redemptoris Mater locates Mary’s motherhood in relation to the Church in the scene at the foot of the Cross where Jesus entrusts us, consecrates us to His Mother: Son, behold thy Mother! The coredemptive compassion of Mary, her active part in the redemptive sacrifice of Jesus, makes her Mother of the unity of the Body of Christ: of the members to each other, and of all to the Head. Absent that active influence and the Church and its members will cease to be one. Fortunately for the Church that material influence is never lacking. What the saviour desires is the cooperation of the members, actual and potential, in taking the Coredemptress into their homes.

The symposium at Downside Abbey at the end of August is a good opportunity noy only to become more informed about the mystery of Marian coredemption, but with many others to live more deeply that mystery which in the words of Vatican II makes Mary the "preeminent member" of the Church.

In defence of Medjugorje

Paul Burnell, from his own experience, answers the critics

Saint Paul tells us that when sin abounds grace superabounds. We have seen abortion, sexual immorality, racism, euthanasia, the Holocaust, nuclear weapons, rampant materialism and global poverty caused by economic injustice. There is apostasy and widespread dissent from Catholic teaching-shepherds leading their sheep astray.

We should expect an outpouring of God’s grace via the Mediatrix of All Graces. Medjugorje, daily apparitions since 24/6/81, is a school of the Eucharist and Mary giving us the tools of spiritual warfare.

After a big conversion in 1990 I started living Our Lady’s messages: fasting on bread and water Wednesday and Fridays, daily Mass, monthly confession, daily Rosary (15 decades), living Sacred Scripture. God and the Blessed Mother gave me the grace.

My 1990 pilgrimage was a tangible taste of Heaven continuing with my second visit on a refugee aid convoy 1993.

Millions in the Medjugorje movement receive a basic remainder of the truths of our Catholic Faith thanks to Almighty God and Gospa-Croatian for Our Lady.

She teaches basic manners saying "dear children" and thanking us for "responding" to her call, telling us "let holy Mass be your life", "pray with the heart", embrace the cross", can prevent wars", family prayer, "peace, peace, peace. Be reconciled", "if you knew how much I love you, you would cry for joy" and begging prayer for unbelievers.

Its fruits include converts from atheism, other denominations and faiths, the lapsed return, numerous priestly and religious, healings, new communities and the healing of drug addicts at Sr Elvira’s Cenacolo Community.

Gospa comes as Queen of Peace to tell us God exists and loves us. A peace which made former INLA terrorist Damien McShane swap bullets for the Rosary or tabloid journalist and Protestant Heather Parsons return a committed believer and later a Catholic.

The parish office in Medjugorje has documented 445 medical healings. Wheelchair bound Heather Duncan from Scotland was healed of a crippling back injury. Remarkably Rita Klaus who believed prayed for healing at home in the USA and also had her cure from multiple sclerosis confirmed by the Lourdes Medical Bureau.

Cardinal Siri of Genoa remarked in 1989, " I have noticed that the people who come from Medjugorje become apostles. They renew the parishes. The form prayer groups. They pray before the Blessed Sacrament. They renew the church."

Like many bishops, Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn, of Vienna found: "If I was an opponent of Medjugorje I’d have to close down my seminary since almost all of the candidates have received their call to the priesthood through Medjugorje."

He told Lourdes pilgrims 12 July 1998: "Personally I have not yet gone to Medjugorje but in a way I have gone there through the people I know or those I have met. I should be lying if I denied these fruits exist."

Writer and theologian Fr Francis Marsden said: "I have been a priest for 18 years. I have never heard or experienced confessions of such depth, or penitence those I heard in Medjugorje on my four visits.

"The conversions happen to people who have never been to Medjugorje. They see a video, read a book, receive a message, hear a friend’s witness or attend one of the many Medjugorje prayer groups. Even watching a video becomes an experience of extraordinary graces." Medjugorje is an important ecumenical and inter-faith centre attracting Muslims, Orthodox, Anglican pilgrims who return home praying the Rosary. The visionary Mirjana states Our Lady told her all religions are not equal before God but all men are.

Its troubles are mirrored by St Faustina the first Saint of the New Millennium whose writings were once banned by the Vatican or St Padre Pio who was barred from celebrating public Mass.

Papal spokesman Dr Joaquin Navarro-Valls (21st August 1996) said Catholics can go privately and priests should provide pastoral support.

He told Catholic News Service USA: "Has the Church or the Vatican said no (to Catholics visiting Medjugorje)?No."

Cardinal Franjo Kuharic of Zagreb told a Croatian Catholic newspaper in 1993, Medjugorje was a Marian sanctuary, adding: "We have nothing against the veneration of the Mother of God in accordance with the teaching of the Church and our faith. This is why we leave this question to further studies. The Church is not in a hurry."

The Bishop of Mostar said at a recent conformation in the parish he did not believe in the apparitions but was satisfied with the parish’s administration. All Franciscans are commissioned by him. Contrary to reports Cardinal Vinko Puljic made no mention of Medjugorje at the Synod of Bishops in Rome 2001.

Medjugorje’s website regularly interviews visiting bishops- 206 cardinals and bishops so far.

Cardinal Corrado Ursi, 94, retired archbishop of Naples, said in November 2001: "I came here to pray and not to discuss. I desire my entire personal conversion … what a joy and what an immense grace to be present here."

The visionaries retain there peace despite intense media scrutiny and character attacks. Like all believers they pray for the bishop and their critics.

Intense scientific tests proved they have sound minds. The late Fr Slavko Barbaric OFM, a Phd in psychology and a psychotherapist, was sent by the Franciscans to debunk but became their spiritual director. His devotional books are spiritual masterpieces and those privileged to attend his annual days of prayer in England and worldwide will never forget their depth and simplicity.

Medjugorje has a full pastoral programme including international conferences for priests, married couples, prayer group leaders and youth. The recent annual international conference on healing and deliverance attracted 500 for priests.

If you follow Gospa’s messages, like the Scripture of the Sower you can conduct your own investigation as Our Lady said in her reported message for the 21st anniversary 25th June 2002, "Dear children! Today I pray for you and with you that the Holy Spirit may help you and increase your faith, so that you may accept even more the messages that I am giving you here in this Holy place. Little children, comprehend that this is a time of grace for each of you; and with me, little children, you are secure. I desire to lead you all on the way of holiness. Live my messages and put into life every word that I am giving you. May they be precious to you because they come from heaven. Thank you for having responded to my call."

Theologians such as mariologist Fr Michael Carrol, see the messages underlining Pope John Paul’s teaching and devotion. In August 1994 Gospa spoke of Pope John Paul II as the one she had chosen for his time.

He will never go or make any official statement while the investigation continues yet there are numerous recorded and documented testimonies of his informal remarks from bishops, priests and lay people- too many to be bogus.

He told Bishop Pavel Hinilca SJ 26th March 1984, the man who became his adviser on Fatima after the 1981 shooting: "Medjugorje is the continuation of Fatima. The world has lost its sense of the supernatural. It is finding it again in Medjugorje through prayer, fasting and the Sacrament of Reconciliation." He has told the visionaries, priests and pilgrims, "Protect Medjugorje." During his visit to Sarajevo 30 members of his entourage including two bishops spent 13 April in Medjugorje and celebrated Mass.
