I am new to this forum and my question is not intended to engender dischord- I begin with this disclaimer as I am so surprised with the level of animosity I see on nearly all of the forums. I really want forlk’s opinions and I don’t think talking about Mary or Jesus should make people agry- especially discussions between fellow Catholics.
I have a great devotion to Mary and the explanations of the role of God, Mary, and the Saints that makes the most sense to me I read somewhere and this was explained by a priest. Basically it goes like this- and I cannot remember the precise terms- To God we give adoration, to the Saints we give reverence, and to Mary we give hyper-reverence. There were greek terms for these concepts.
In any case, I am comfortable with thinking of Mary as Mediatrix of Graces but I feel nervous with the term Co-Redemtrix. I do not believe that the Church has given officially, Mary this title “Co-Redemtrix.” What do people think?
