General Summary of Mariology of the roman catholic church
Combining the Two Ex Cathedra Dogmas. Only two writing in over 2000 years of the Catholic Church have risen to the level of being, "Ex Cathra Dogma" (means 'from the chair') which means they have been "invoked" by the Holy Spirit. These documents are to be divinely inspired and without error since this 'revelation' comes from the apostolic success from Jesus to Peter, that is passed down to the Popes. Here is a list of highlights from:
- MUNIFICENTISSIMUS DEUS BY POPE PIUS XII on November 1, 1950
- INEFFABILIS DEUS BY POPE PIUS IX on December 8, 1854
General Highlight Statements:
- The Catholic Church is pleased with increased piety of Mary.
- Mary was always united with God and joined with Him in an intimate and indissoluble bond, by an eternal covenant, so God with one and same decree established Mary and Jesus, so her ancient soul, in the first instant of its creation and in the first instant of the soul's infusion into the body, was by special singular grace and privilege of God, Mary would possess an exalted dignity as the Mother of God, conceived immaculately, with spotless innocence, free from the curse and stain of original sin, and it is only fitting that she would be assumed into heaven to be glorified, and dwell in heaven as the Spouse, the Queen of the King of the ages, the Redeemer, Jesus.
- Mary was given an abundance of grace, virtues and privileges.
- Mary was given innocence, purity and holiness.
- Mary was raised in virginal body and soul to heaven.
- Mary was gloried; shining with sublime glory in heaven.
- Mary had an uncorrupted virginal body, even after death, and would not see the corruption of the grave.
- Mary was free of sin, death, the law, and the need for redemption.
- Mary's body and soul could go to heaven for several reasons;
- She had an uncorrupted and eternal virginal body,
- She conceived and brought forth Jesus
- She feed Jesus at her breast and fondled Him on her lap,
- She shared an intimate and indissolubly bond with Jesus,
- She shared His eternal hatred of Satan,
- She saw and felt the sword of sorrow at His death,
- She victoriously defeated Satan with her immaculate foot,
- She shared in His resurrection from the dead,
- She shared in His glorification of body and soul in heaven,
- She was enabled to possess whatever belongs to Him,
- Even being honored by every creature as His mother and handmaid (a subservient female partner).
- Mary is the woman of Revelation 12.
- If you don't believe all of this, then you'll go to hell.
