I was wondering about this quote I found. I can’t find where it’s from, or what context it was written in, but here is the text:
Pope Leo XIII
Every grace which is communicated to this world has a threefold origin: it flows from God to Christ, from Christ to the Virgin, and from the Virgin to us . . . Nothing comes to us except through the mediation of Mary, for such is the will of God. Thus, just as no man goes to the Father but by the Son, so likewise no one goes to Christ except through His Mother. Whosoever will not have recourse to her is trying to fly without wings . . . O Virgin Most Holy, no one abounds in the knowledge of God except through thee; no one, O Mother of God, attains salvation except through thee!
Did he actually say this? One of the things that makes me wonder this is that pretty much the only sites that have it are anti-Catholic, except for one. If so, what does he mean by ‘no one, O Mother of God, attains salvation except through thee!’ ?
