The Mission of Our Lady as the Immaculate Coredemptrix Continued after Calvary: Fourth Sunday of Advent, December 20, 2015

J.M.J. "God alone is our help and salvation. And yet, the Woman also participates, in an exceptional though integral way, in this divine role. But how? Certainly, from the standpoint of salvation history, it is through her role as the Immaculate Coredemptrix. She helped Our Lord accomplish the work of Redemption in a quite singular way. And yet, her saving role did not end on Calvary. She serves as divine helpmate now by conceiving the life of Christ in her children-to-be in the order of grace. In a word, she conceives grace in the soul: the conception of faith."

--The Reverend Giacinto Marie Dagesse, "Immaculate Faith," in Missio Immaculatae International, Volume 11, Number 6 (November/December 2015), 35.
