Mariology for Everyone #2 ( 17min) Play – Mariology for Everyone-Lecture Two: God’s Revealed Will and Mary, part 2

Ave Maria!

This series is a complete 50 part introductory course on Mary presented by Dr. Miravalle, a theology professor specializing in Mariology, who has been teaching at the Franciscan University of Steubenville for over 25 years. General topics are as follows:

– Mary as revealed in the Sacred Scriptures, taught and explained by the Church Fathers, the Saints, and the Church’s documents
-the proper ways to show childlike love and devotion to the Blessed Mother of Jesus;
-Church’s official teaching on Marian apparitions over the centuries.
It is time for Christians, those who believe and entrust their lives to Jesus Christ, to have a better knowledge, a better love as well as to allow himself/herself to be loved by the Mother of Jesus, who is also his/her Mother as was given to us by Jesus (Jn 19.26).
Thanks to the generosity and the great love Dr. Miravalle has been tirelessly shown to our Blessed Virgin Mother, the theology of Mary as should be properly taught are now available to us.

Our Lady Coredemptrix

Saturday, March 28th, 2015

Ave Maria Meditations

Jesus and Mary: these are the two dear names with which the entire plan of our salvation is entwined. This was the will of God, that as a man and the woman were the authors of our ruin, so a man and a woman should bring the salvation. As Jesus Christ is the Redeemer of mankind, Mary was destined to be that co-redemptress, for to use the phrase of Albertus Magnus, Adjutorium redemptionis.

Jesus Christ is verily the Redeemer of mankind, but He has been given to us by Mary. She is therefore of necessity our Co-redemptress. When we speak of redemption, we picture to ourselves the Divine Victim on the cross. And yet the mystery of the cross is not to be separated from the mysteries of the crib, for the evening Sacrifice of Calvary was but the completion of the morning Sacrifice of the Incarnation.

The priceless Victim offered on the cross had been prepared and fashioned in Mary’s womb. The heroines of Israel, Abigail who saved her husband, Judith who saved a city, Esther who saved her people, we’re but faint images of her who brought into the world the Savior not of a man, not of a city, not of a nation, but of the whole race: Adjutorium redemptionis.

Ave Maria Meditations

Meditation on Luke 1:26-38: The Angel Gabriel was sent….


“In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary” (Lk 1:26f.). In the first place, the annunciation of the birth of Jesus is linked chronologically with the story of John the Baptist by the reference to the time that has elapsed since the archangel Gabriel’s message to Zechariah, that is to say “in the sixth month” of Elizabeth’s pregnancy. The two events and the two missions are also linked in this passage by the indication that Mary and Elizabeth, and hence their offspring too, are blood relatives.

 Mary’s visit to Elizabeth, made as a consequence of the dialogue between Gabriel and Mary (cf. Lk 1:36), occasions an encounter in the Holy Spirit between Jesus and John even before they are born, and this encounter at the same time makes visible the relationship between their respective missions: Jesus is the younger of the two, the one who comes later. But he is the one whose proximity causes John to leap in his mother’s womb and fills Elizabeth with the Holy Spirit (cf. Lk 1:41). So in Luke’s annunciation and nativity narratives, what the Baptist was to say in John’s Gospel is already objectively present: “This is he of whom I said, ‘After me comes a man who ranks before me, for he was before me’” (1:30).

Now, though, it is time to look more closely at the story of the annunciation to Mary of the birth of Jesus. First let us consider the angel’s message, then Mary’s answer.

Feb 17 – Homily – Fr Matthias: Devotion to Our Lady’s Sorrows

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

Homily #150217n ( 07min) Play – Father speaks of the 7 men we remember today, the 7 Holy Founders of the Servite order. They received a mandate from the Mother of God herself to spread devotion to her sorrows. Father tells us that the word of redemption has two parts, the objective redemption, which is the work of Christ on the cross whereby he won for us our redemption, and the subjective redemption, which is the application of those merits to us. We need to be devoted to the Passion of Our Lord, since it is by this we can be saved, but the complement of Our Lord’s Passion is Our Lady’s Compassion, and it was these two united which won salvation for us.

Revealing Our Lady

Saturday, February 7th, 2015

Ave Maria Meditations

God wishes therefore to reveal Mary, his masterpiece and make her more known in these latter times:

  • ·       Because she kept herself hidden in this world and in her great humility considered herself lower than dust, having obtained from God, his Apostles, and evangelists the favor of not being made known.
  • ·       Because, as Mary is not only God’s masterpiece of glory in heaven, but also his masterpiece of grace on earth, he wishes to be glorified and praised because of her by those living upon earth.
  • ·       Since she is the dawn which precedes and discloses the Sun of Justice, Jesus Christ, she must be known and acknowledged so that Jesus may be known and acknowledged.
  • ·       As she was the way by which Jesus first came to us, she will again be the way by which he will come to us the second time though not in the same manner.
  • ·       Since she is the sure means, the direct and immaculate way to Jesus and the perfect guide to him, it is through her that souls who are to shine forth in sanctity must find him.
  • ·       He who finds Mary finds life that is, Jesus Christ. 
Saint Louis Marie de Montfort
