Video – Variety #190: Intro to Mary for Our Lady of Walsingham Ordinariate Members Part 3
Intro to Mary for Catholics of Our Lady of Walsingham Ordinariate
Fr. Agnellus M. Murphy, F.I.
November 17th, 2011
-Fr. Agnellus lays the foundation for his three talks by explaining that we need to learn about Our Lady because we cannot love someone we do not know. In order to know Our Lady we need to be guided by grace through prayer. He further sustains that in these times to remain faithful to Christ, according to the Gospel, one needs to live out true devotion to Our Lady.
3rd Conference: Mary’s Maternal Mediation
-According to St. Thomas Aquinas, Mary’ divine Maternity is “quasi-infinite.” Mary’s Fiat is the beginning of our salvation for Jesus enters the world through Her. Mary is the Mediatrix of all graces and receives this role in regards to Her Son as the one Mediator. She is like the “neck” in the Mystical Body of Christ, for all graces pass from the Head to the body through Her. She is also Co-Redemptrix since she helped redeem the world with Her Son in an unique manner. When we accept Mary as our spiritual Mother, then we accept God’s plan of forming in us into the image of His Son. Mary’s presence in our spiritual life helps us grow in grace only if we are ready to carry our cross with Her.
