Mary at the Foot of the Cross 5: Immaculate Conception and Coredemption
The 150th anniversary of the proclamation of the dogma of the Immaculate Conception occasioned the theme of this volume. The mysteries of Mary are so intertwined that each of them sheds light to one other. This is the case between the Immaculate Conception and Marian Coredemption. A typical Franciscan thesis, the articles in this series reiterates that only she who is perfectly redeemed (Immaculate Conception) has a unique active role in the redemption of Christ. Only one who is fullness of graces, in the words of St. Maximilian, can distribute and mediate them to souls.
