The Fifth Marian Dogma



An abstract of the article “The Fifth Marian Dogma: The Church’s Unused Weapon” by DR. MARK IRAVALLE AND RICHARD L RUSSELL.


The Fatima apparitions occurred at the closing of World War I, and significant apparitions about international politics occurred at the closing of World War II in Amsterdam, Holland. The Blessed Mother had 56 appearances, from 1945 to 1959, to a humble Dutch woman.

The Blessed Mother, The Lady of All Nations, warned of a coming age of “degeneration, disaster, and war.”  She offered help if Catholics would petition the Holy Father to proclaim the fifth and final Marian Dogma of Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate.  It would bring a descent of the Holy Spirit like the Pentecost.

The Fifth Marian Dogma is an unused weapon in the Church’s arsenal amid world degeneration, disaster and war.  Popes have officially taught over the centuries Christ’ mother is the Spiritual Mother of All Peoples.

She intercedes as advocate for our needs with maternal perseverance and power beyond all other saints. Mary brings human needs to Christ’s throne and has the greatest intercessory power before her son.  She is “advocate” for human intercession since the 2nd century.

Mary is the Mediatrix for dispensing graces to humanity, she interceded to bring Christ, the source of all graces, into the world, and Christ appointed her at the climax of His redeeming sacrifice on the cross the spiritual mother of all peoples to dispense graces to the humanity.

Mary uniquely shared Christ’s sacrifice to redeem humanity giving His body and suffering with Christ at Calvary.  The Church calls her “Co-Redemptrix” since the 14th century.  “Co” means “with,” not “equal.”

The Blessed Mother’s recognition of Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate and the petition to the Holy Father for the dogma declaration has a long tradition in the Church.  Petition drives are manifestations of the faithful consensus to encourage the Holy Father to a particular course of action, must conform to the Church’s faith and moral teachings and be submitted with an unconditional obedience to the ultimate papal decision.

The Holy Father’s free acknowledgement and solemn announcement of Mary’s role as Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix, and Advocate would allow him to fully enact human intercession.  History shows graces pour over the Church after the proclamation of Marian Dogmas.  The more solemnly we acknowledge Mary’s functions, the more powerfully she can exercise them.

The Catholic Church needs the weapons of Fatima and Amsterdam to combat the onslaught of evil in the world.
