Synopsis

What Every Catholic Should Know about Mary: Dogmas, Doctrines, and Devotions by Terrence J. McNally This book provides a concise summary of Traditional Catholic Mariology. It explains the following facts: • Jesus worked his first miracle for Mary (Jn 2:1–11). • Mary kept the faith of the Church alive on Calvary (Jn 19:25–27). • By 200 CE, Catholic Mariology was virtually completed. • Early Christians painted pictures of Mary in the catacombs. • The earliest prayer to Mary dates from c. 270 CE. • Between 100 and 200 CE, a church was dedicated to Mary at Nazareth. • In the 350s, the feast of the Assumption of Mary was celebrated on August 15. • In 431 CE, the Church proclaimed Mary Mother of God. • Marian devotion is Christ-centered and presupposes conversion of heart. • Catholic Marian teaching derives from the Bible and Tradition (the apostles as witnessed by the Fathers of the Church). • The four Marian dogmas are the Divine Maternity, Perpetual Virginity, Immaculate Conception, and Assumption into heaven. The Church never defined dogmas of Mary as Co-Redemptrix and/or Mediatrix of all graces. • In heaven, Mary shares subordinately in the mediation of Jesus Christ, the only Mediator. • The rosary is 57 percent biblical.
