Co-Redemptrix: O Happy Fault!

As the Immaculate Conception, in perfect solidarity with her Divine Son Jesus, in such catastrophically sorrowful conditions became also our Mother under the Cross with her perfect intercession for us with Him, she surely also had the joy, in those birth pangs for us, the joy that Body of Christ was being born, not only Christ the Head of the Body, but we the members of that body, the children also now of the Holy Family.

I think Augustine, had he been equipped with a better understanding of original sin and therefore of the Immaculate Conception… I think Augustine would have spoken more of the joy of the Mother of God and the Mother of the Body of Christ, that the Body of Christ was being born.

O felix culpa! Yes, but let’s see her pronounce that in a preeminent way.

    You have a way of presenting great truths vividly – the reality clear and concisely expressed. Thank you Father and keep going.
