PAPAL ENCYCLICAL SHOW MARY’S “ROLE” IN SALVATION
A Dozen Papal Encyclicals Reveal Mary’s True Role in Salvation [Excerpts] The Truth never changes but is revealed, through time, to a greater degree until the point at which it is fully known. Such is the role of Mary through Salvation history as revealed in twelve different Papal encyclicals that have been used with permission from Libreria Editrice Vaticana and comprise the highly acclaimed “Mary — Ever Virgin, Full of Grace: A Study of Papal Encyclicals on Mary.” Using Pope Leo XIII’s 1891 “Octobri Menseo” as a starting point and concluding with JPII’s 1987 “Redemptoris Mater,” best-selling Catholic author and educator Cheryl Dickow delves into Church documents to uncover Mary’s true role in salvation and examines why now is a pivotal time in human history to recognize Mary as Mediatrix and as the perfect way to Christ.
