Who's The Virgen Mary for the Catholic Church?

The Roman Catholic Church says...

“For maternal duty of Mary toward men shows its power, for all saving influences.

“For, taken up to heaven, she did not lay aside this saving role, but by her acts of intercession continues to win for us gifts of eternal salvation. The Blessed Virgin is invoked by the Church under the titles of Advocate, Auxiliartrix, Adjutrix, and Mediatrix.

“Mary was involved in the mysteries of Christ. As the Mother of God she was, after her Son, exalted by divine grace above all angels and men.”

–Vatican Council II.

Leaders of the Roman Catholic Church say…

“Sinners receive pardon by Mary alone. He falls and is lost who has not recourse to Mary.

“Mary is called ‘the gate of Heaven because no one can enter that blessed kingdom without passing through her.

“The way of salvation is open on their being favored and protected by Mary.

“He who is protected by Mary will be saved, he who is not will be lost.

“God will not save us without the intercession of Mary. “If my redeemer should reject me, I will throw myself at Mary’s feet.”

–Canonized Cardinal
Saint Alphonsus de Liguori.

The New Webster Encyclopedic Dictionary says…

The Bible says…

“Therefore, He (Jesus) is always able to save those who approach Him, since He lives forever to make intercession for them.”

–Hebrews 7:25

“But, if anyone does sin, we have an advocate (defender) with the Father, Jesus Christ the Righteous One.”

“Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.”

…that we should even consider it necessary to reach God through another intercessor, such as His mother, if Christ is today speaking in our defense before God?

 

…that there is a Bible verse that indicates that Mary has a part in our salvation?
