For our Symposium "Mother of the Church" on Marian Coredemption in the National Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, La Crosse, Wisconsin on August 21, 2010, Luis Cardinal Aponte-Martinez, Archbishop Emeritus of San Juan, Puerto Rico gives the second talk titled "Our Lady of Guadalupe: The Coredemptrix and the New Evangelization". Cardinal Aponte has been one of the most energetic promoters of the dogma of Mary as Coredemptrix. In this talk he uses his warm humor to draw connections between the great evangelization of the Americas through the apparition of Our Lady of Guadalupe and the promise of a similarly fruitful period of worldwide evangelization in our own time should we honor Mary by declaring the Fifth Dogma. By doing so we will fulfill the desire of Pope JPII for a New Evangelization. He says the fruit will be the reconversion of formerly Christian lands beck to the faith, the conversion of new Christian lands, Christians will be united in humility and the world will have peace all as only a mother can give. He points out that by declaring the Fifth Dogma of Mary as Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate we are declaring her Mother of the Church and Mother of all Peoples and so we will obtain all the associated motherly spiritual gifts for the whole world. He gives a final exhortation for us to all go out and pray and be active in promoting the dogma to friends, family and even to our pastors and bishops.
Drew Mariani of Relevant Radio was MC of the symposium.
