The Biblical Mary:
is she the same as the Mary found in the two 'ex Cathedra' (Infallible) Dogmas of the Roman catholic church?
The Catholic Church has written thousands of documents over their 2000 plus years, but only two have risen to the top to receive the title of "Ex Cathedra" which means "from the chair" denoting Papal Infallibility. These documents are the only two absolutely without error and 'invoked' of the Holy Spirit from the apostolic succession passed down from Jesus to Peter, then later to the Popes. We will examine any similarities and differences between the biblical Mary and the Mary found in these two documents:
- INEFFABILIS DEUS BY POPE PIUS IX on December 8, 1854
- Munificentissimus Deus by Pope Pius XII on November 1, 1950
