____ More notes
0:10 Mary's unique cooperation - Jesus always shares His Cross.
CCC 494 http://www.scborromeo.org/ccc/p122a3p2.htm#494 "Being obedient she became the cause of salvation for herself and for the whole human race."
2:20 Nazareth to Calvary
Her Heart Broken by her Unbroken word
3:35 Acquiring and Distributing Graces
Mary's unique cooperation in the redemption both in acquiring graces which is Coredemption and in distributing Mediatrix
Regarding her Coredemption three aspects:
4:22 - 1 Active - "Espousing the divine will for salvation wholeheartedly" CCC 494
Principle of Fittingness - attribute to virgin mary perfections and prerogatives fitting to her dignity and mission
Infused knowledge at foot of the cross of all sin and actively
6:05 - 2 Immediate and direct - "she gave herself entirely to the person and to the work of her Son"
Gibson's passion of Christ - Mary Letting go of stones pebbles at foot of Cross
8:25 - 3 Subordinated and dependent on Christ - St Louis Montfort's hypothetical necessity - could have redeemed any way, but once he chose one it became necessary. So, Mary's participation became necessary.
9:16 St Bridget - Jesus, “My Mother and I saved man as with one Heart only, I by suffering in My Heart and My Flesh, she by the sorrow and love of her Heart.”

10:07 Mary the New Eve - United and associated with Christ (the New Adam) in the work of salvation, like Eve was associated with Adam in the ruin of all mankind
Thus she is also our Mother.
