If you peruse that for a second, you know I have to do up a popular version.
Meanwhile, I did give a conference on that thesis, further developing some points on the Immaculate Conception as that which lays the foundation for Mary’s maternal warfare. A good friend, the President of the Pontifical Biblical Commission, was in attendance.
Any links in that last pdf are all broken, defunct, dead. Sorry. Life goes on.
It’s really painful to put those two pdfs up “as is.” After so many years one would surely rewrite the lot of it. Be that as it may, there’s plenty there in which to rejoice:
- The anthropology extracted from the text by which we see how it is that the transmission of original sin is not by imitation but by propagation. This is the first time this has been demonstrated from the text in the history of Judeo-Catholicism. It is what it is. There are historical and linguistic reasons.
- Because of this, the Immaculate Conception is also demonstrated from the text (Lk 1:28 being another place this happens).
- Because of this, we also see clearly what our spiritual lives are to be following original sin, and also what Mary’s spiritual life was like being the Immaculate Conception. It’s not what you think, at all.
- Because of all of this, an ex-Cathedra infallible pronouncement on Mary co-Redemptrix would be most appropriate. Etc. Etc. Etc.

Thank you, Father.
“Because of all of this, an ex-Cathedra infallible pronouncement on Mary co-Redemptrix would be most appropriate. Etc. Etc. Etc.”
Yes! I don’t think this Pope will be the one to do it, though, but perhaps if he were to receive the grace of a big enough shock he could.
As you have noticed, Father, the Vatican and other interested parties are reading what you put up on-line and there are still others aware of your thesis in Rome and where you have given a seminar etc. Perhaps the next Pope, be he presently a cardinal, bishop, priest or laymen, is among those who have or will read and understand what you have written, and will proclaim the 5th Marian Dogma when he becomes Pope.
Don’t be discouraged, Father, that you have not had time so far to do up a popular version. You will do it when your Guardian Angel knows the time is right and clears the space for you, be that time now or still in the future. Everyone who reads here could ask their Guardian Angel to speak to your Guardian Angel, asking him to clear and ease the way forward as soon as possible. And then, when your popular version is done, more will be on board to pray for the 5th Marian Dogma: our Immaculate Mother declared ex-Cathedra, “co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate”!
Yes. Count me among those praying along with Aussie Mum, Father.
Hear hear! (and pray pray)
