Day of Dialogue on Thursday, March 25th, 2010
Here is a special news item from the Vatican and a reminder about the Day of Dialogue on Thursday, March 25th.
Pope Benedict calls Mary “Mediatrix of Grace” before Day of Dialogue on the Fifth Marian Dogma
During his Angelus message last Sunday (March 21, 2010), Pope Benedict referred to Mary as the “Mediatrix of grace for every penitent sinner.” This comes just days before the March 25 “Day of Dialogue on the Fifth Marian Dogma” to be held in the Vatican Forum not far from St. Peter’s Basilica.
The words of the Holy Father certainly come as an encouragement to those participating in this Thursday’s Roman dialogue on the issue of the Fifth Marian Dogma.
The Day of Dialogue, consisting of bishops and theologians discussing the present appropriateness of the solemn definition of Our Lady’s role as Spiritual Mother of all humanity, Co-redemptrix, Mediatrix of all graces and Advocate, will be live streamed from 5:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. eastern standard time (10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Roman time).
