I’ve recently had a friend challenge me with the enclyclical “Ubi Primum” written by Pope Pius IX in 1849 and that some of the statements about Mary should actually be attributed to Jesus. For example: “Her foot has crushed the head of Satan” and “God has commited to Mary the treasury of all good things, in order that everyone may know that through her are obtained every hope, every grace, and all salvation. For this is His will, that we obtain everything through Mary.”
What is a clear concise way to explain this to my evangelical friend, besides me just picking at small points to explain?
The link to where he pointed out the “contradictory” nature of the encyclical is triablogue.blogspot.com/2007/04/queen-mother.html#links
