The Many Roles of Mary: Wednesday, September 9, 2015

J.M.J. "By her maternal charity, Mary cares for the brethren of her Son, who still journey on earth surrounded by dangers and difficulties, until they are led into their blessed home. Therefore, the Blessed Virgin is invoked by the Church under the titles of Advocate, Helper, Benefactress, and Mediatrix."

--Lumen Gentium (Dogmatic Constitution on the Church), from the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council (November 21, 1964), 62
