4 THE MOTHER OF GOD

5 Genesis 3:15 The Douay Rheims Latin Vulgate was translated : 15 I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed: she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel.

6 Catholics believe that Mary is not eternal or God herself. At least there’s nothing stating this. However this title was not given to her predominately because she was the mother of Jesus.

7  Roman Empire Theodosius, back in the 4th century, after somewhat embracing Christianity, found that within the Roman Empire not everyone was ready to forsake their religious beliefs and embrace themselves.

8 The Egyptian mother-goddess Isis, was absorbed into Christianity by replacing Isis with Mary. Many of Isis’ titles, such as “Queen of Heaven,” “Mother of God,” and “theotokos” (God-bearer) were transferred to Mary. This was an attempt to attract Isis worshipers to Christianity. Isis temples were converted into temples that were dedicated to Mary. The Egyptian mother-goddess Isis, was absorbed into Christianity by replacing Isis with Mary.

9 Jeremiah 7:18 shows how dangerous this is for Catholics to give the title Queen of Heaven to Mary. Jeremiah 7:18 shows how dangerous this is for Catholics to give the title Queen of Heaven to Mary. “The children gather wood, the fathers kindle fire, and the women knead dough, to make cakes for the queen of heaven. And they pour out drink offerings to other gods, to provoke me to anger.” “The children gather wood, the fathers kindle fire, and the women knead dough, to make cakes for the queen of heaven. And they pour out drink offerings to other gods, to provoke me to anger.” God is quite clear that by praying to someone your are calling queen of heaven that this provokes him to anger. God is quite clear that by praying to someone your are calling queen of heaven that this provokes him to anger.

10 St. John Chrysostom (d. 407), "It is truly just to proclaim you blessed, O Mother of God, who are most blessed, all pure and Mother of our God. We magnify you who are more honorable than the Cherubim and incomparably more glorious than the Seraphim. You who, without losing your virginity, gave birth to the Word of God. You who are truly the Mother of God." St. John Chrysostom (d. 407), "It is truly just to proclaim you blessed, O Mother of God, who are most blessed, all pure and Mother of our God. We magnify you who are more honorable than the Cherubim and incomparably more glorious than the Seraphim. You who, without losing your virginity, gave birth to the Word of God. You who are truly the Mother of God."

11 THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION

12 This dogma states that from the very moment of her existence she was kept from original sin in the womb. It is further believed that she lived completely free of sin her entire life. This dogma states that from the very moment of her existence she was kept from original sin in the womb. It is further believed that she lived completely free of sin her entire life. (This actually did not even become official until Pope Pius IX in 1854) (This actually did not even become official until Pope Pius IX in 1854)

13 "We pronounce, declare, and define it to be a divinely revealed dogma: that the Immaculate 1 Mother of God 2, the ever Virgin Mary 3, having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul 4 into heavenly glory…. "We pronounce, declare, and define it to be a divinely revealed dogma: that the Immaculate 1 Mother of God 2, the ever Virgin Mary 3, having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul 4 into heavenly glory….

14 …Hence if anyone, which God forbid, should dare willfully to deny or to call into doubt that which we have defined, let him know that he has fallen away completely from the divine and Catholic Faith." …Hence if anyone, which God forbid, should dare willfully to deny or to call into doubt that which we have defined, let him know that he has fallen away completely from the divine and Catholic Faith."

15 (Luke 1:28 King James Version) “And when the angel had come to her, he said, “Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women.”

16 Lets read Luke 1:47 now. “and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior” (It’s evident that Mary needed a savior herself.)

17 Of course she needed a Savior. But he saved her before she was conceived. They say that Jesus prevented her from falling into Original Sin.

18 PERPETU AL VIRGIN

19 What does Luke 1:34 read? and Mary said to the angel, “How will this be, since I am a virgin.”

20 This is a perpetual vow of celibacy taken by Mary. She would have never asked how if she intended to have sex.

21 Let’s look at the during her birth and after aspects of this dogma. First, we know from scripture that Mary went to Jerusalem for purification as was required by the Law of Moses. First, we know from scripture that Mary went to Jerusalem for purification as was required by the Law of Moses.

22 Luke 2:22 “And when the time came for their purification according to the Law of Moses, they brought him up to Jerusalem…..”. Luke 2:22 “And when the time came for their purification according to the Law of Moses, they brought him up to Jerusalem…..”.

23 Also, Micah 5:3 says “Therefore he shall give them up until the time when she who is in labor has given birth;” Also, Micah 5:3 says “Therefore he shall give them up until the time when she who is in labor has given birth;” (A prophecy of the coming Messiah)

24 So what does the Law of Moses actually state???? Lev. 12:4 “ Then she shall continue for thirty-three days in the blood of her purifying.” Lev. 12:4 “ Then she shall continue for thirty-three days in the blood of her purifying.” Lev.12:7 “and he shall offer it before the Lord an make atonement for her” Lev.12:7 “and he shall offer it before the Lord an make atonement for her”

25 Lev. 12: 8 states “And if she cannot afford a lamb, then she shall take two turtle doves or two pigeons, one for a burnt offering and the other for a sin offering. And the priest shall make atonement for her, and she shall be clean.” Lev. 12: 8 states “And if she cannot afford a lamb, then she shall take two turtle doves or two pigeons, one for a burnt offering and the other for a sin offering. And the priest shall make atonement for her, and she shall be clean.”

26 In regards to after her birth adelphos = brother Adelphe = sister anepsios = cousins

27 Scripture also states that “But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son…” Mathew 1:25 Scripture also states that “But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son…” Mathew 1:25 Read John 7: 1-5 Read John 7: 1-5 Catholics try to link brothers with brethen and that the brothers were really his brethen. But this flies in the face of this argument. “His brothers did not believe him” Catholics try to link brothers with brethen and that the brothers were really his brethen. But this flies in the face of this argument. “His brothers did not believe him”

28 THE ASSUMPTIO N

29 The Catholic church came out with, in 1950, that at the end of Mary’s life she was bodily and spiritually assumed into heaven. They leave it open to the thought that she may or may have not actually died before being assumed.

30 966 "Finally the Immaculate Virgin, preserved free from all stain of original sin, when the course of her earthly life was finished, was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory, and exalted by the Lord as Queen over all things, so that she might be the more fully conformed to her Son, the Lord of lords and conqueror of sin and death. "The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin is a singular participation in her Son's Resurrection and an anticipation of the resurrection of other Christians:

31 In giving birth you kept your virginity; in your Dormition (Assumption) you did not leave the world, O Mother of God, but were joined to the source of Life. You conceived the living God and, by your prayers, will deliver our souls from death.

32 MEDIATRIX OF ALL GRACES

33 What is Mediatrix, What is Mediatrix, (This refers to the role of the Mary as a mediator in the salvation process.) The concept of Mediatrix has two meanings: The concept of Mediatrix has two meanings: 1) Mary gave birth to the redeemer, who is the fountain of all grace. Therefore she participated in the mediating of grace. 2) A second opinion states that Mary, assumed into heaven, participates in the mediating of divine graces of her son.

34 The Catechism states, 969 "This motherhood of Mary in the order of grace continues uninterruptedly from the consent which she loyally gave at the Annunciation and which she sustained without wavering beneath the cross, until the eternal fulfillment of all the elect. Taken up to heaven she did not lay aside this saving office but by her manifold intercession continues to bring us the gifts of eternal salvation.... Therefore the Blessed Virgin is invoked in the Church under the titles of Advocate, Helper, Benefactress, and Mediatrix." 969 "This motherhood of Mary in the order of grace continues uninterruptedly from the consent which she loyally gave at the Annunciation and which she sustained without wavering beneath the cross, until the eternal fulfillment of all the elect. Taken up to heaven she did not lay aside this saving office but by her manifold intercession continues to bring us the gifts of eternal salvation.... Therefore the Blessed Virgin is invoked in the Church under the titles of Advocate, Helper, Benefactress, and Mediatrix."

35 February 26th 1981 “Was it not for encouragement that God chose to come to us through the Immaculate Virgin, conceived without sin? From the first moment of her existence she was never under the power of sin, while we are called to be cleansed of sin by opening our heart to the merciful Redeemer whom she brought into this world. There is no better way to approach her Son than through her.”

36 February 11th 1980 February 11th 1980 “Upright by the cross of her Son on Calvary, the most holy Virgin shared in his Passion and knows how to convince ever fresh souls to unite their suffering with Christ’s sacrifice, in a joint “offertory,” which surpasses time and space and embraces the whole of mankind and saves it.” “Upright by the cross of her Son on Calvary, the most holy Virgin shared in his Passion and knows how to convince ever fresh souls to unite their suffering with Christ’s sacrifice, in a joint “offertory,” which surpasses time and space and embraces the whole of mankind and saves it.”

37 August 19th 1979 August 19th 1979 “I wish to place you under the protection of the Blessed Virgin. May she, who for many years could profit from the visible presence of Jesus and who treated her Divine Son with the greatest care and delicacy, accompany you always to the Eucharist. May she give you her own sentiments of adoration and of love.” “I wish to place you under the protection of the Blessed Virgin. May she, who for many years could profit from the visible presence of Jesus and who treated her Divine Son with the greatest care and delicacy, accompany you always to the Eucharist. May she give you her own sentiments of adoration and of love.”

38   On February 8, 2008 five Roman Catholic Cardinals issued a petition asking Pope Benedict XVI to dogmatically declare the Blessed Virgin Mary as both Co-Redemptrix and Mediatrix.   d=224&grupo=News%20%20Media&canal=News

39 CO- REDEMPTRI X

40 What is Co-Redemptrix???? It refers to the role of Mary in the redemption process. It is a separate concept from Mediatrix.The concept of Co- redemptrix refers to an indirect or unequal but important participation by the Blessed Virgin Mary in redemption. She gave free consent to give life to the redeemer, to share his life, to suffer with him under the cross and to sacrifice him for the sake of the redemption of humankind.

41 Another words, Mary gave him up to be sacrificed. Another words, Mary gave him up to be sacrificed. John 10:17 “For this reason the Father loves me, because I lay down my life that I may take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This charge I have received from my Father.” John 10:17 “For this reason the Father loves me, because I lay down my life that I may take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This charge I have received from my Father.”

42 The Catechism states, 964 Mary's role in the Church is inseparable from her union with Christ and flows directly from it. ……. 964 Mary's role in the Church is inseparable from her union with Christ and flows directly from it. …….

43 ……Thus the Blessed Virgin advanced in her pilgrimage of faith, and faithfully persevered in her union with her Son unto the cross. There she stood, in keeping with the divine plan, enduring with her only begotten Son the intensity of his suffering, joining herself with his sacrifice in her mother's heart, and lovingly consenting to the immolation of this victim, born of her: to be given, by the same Christ Jesus dying on the cross, as a mother to his disciple, with these words: "Woman, behold your son."

44 Do they worship Mary then????

45 Roman Catholics will state that they do not worship Mary if asked, they will say that they ‘venerate’ her, meaning honor her.

46 ….. When Pope John Paul II was shot, while the ambulance was rushing him to the hospital, the Pope was not praying to God or calling on the name of Jesus.
