Video – Synod Father Calls for Fifth Marian Dogma – MNOW 13
Mary Now #13 ( 09min) Play - Dr. Mark Miravalle reports on the intervention from Bishop Jaime Fuentes of Minas, Uruguay, at the Synod of the Family where he specifically requested Pope Francis to make the dogmatic proclamation of the doctrine of Mary as the Spiritual Mother of all humanity as a remedy to the crisis of the family in our modern times. He reads the English translation of this short statement that the Bishop made which refers to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the writings of Pope Francis, Pope St. John Paul II, and lastly Bl. John Henry Newman who mentions the need for input from the laity on any matter pertaining to Marian devotion. In this light, Dr. Miravalle then relates this to the petition that was started by Cardinal Mercier for the same purpose about one hundred years ago and to the earlier successful petition drive for the proclamation of the Immaculate Conception. He then encourages us to join Bishop Fuentes in petitioning the Pope for this proclamation.
