We are so blessed to have Dr. Mark Miravalle, Professor of Theology and Mariology at the Franciscan University of Steubenville, host this new inspirational series on AirMaria entitled Coredemptrix, Mediatrix, & Advocate, which will present and explain these roles of Mary to help prepare the way for a possible definition of the 5th Marian Dogma.
In this first episode Dr. Mark clearly explains Our Blessed Lady’s role as Coredemptrix by first underscoring what Coredemptrix does not mean i.e. that she is not God, that she is not equal with Jesus, and that she is not the Fourth person of the Blessed Trinity.
We hope you will enjoy watching this series as much as we did filming it. We also hope that this series will help to dispel all the many misconceptions and misunderstandings of Our Blessed Lady’s role in the salvation of the human race and inspire you to greater love of Mary and her Son, Jesus.

In this episode of No Apologies Fra Joseph discusses the nature of Biblical typology, its validity and how it can be applied to lend support for the Marian dogmas of the Church. Come learn about Mary in the Old Testament.
Christ is risen but there are others who were resurrected from the dead both by old Testament Patriarchs and New Testament Apostles. So what is unique about the rising of Christ, even above these other amazing miracles. Come listen and learn from Fr Ignatius.
Ave Maria!Our Roving Reporter and AirMaria Vlogmaster, Friar Roderic Mary, recently tracked down Fr. Don Calloway MIC, in Steubenville, Ohio. Father was kind enough to squeeze in two interviews for us in the short space of time he had to spare between two other meetings. This week's interview is about Fr. Don's conversion story (the short version that is!). Listen to this incredible story about how Mary works to bring about a major spiritual transformation. Ave Maria!
Ave Maria!This is our second interview with Fr. Don Calloway, MIC, which our Roving Reporter, Friar Roderic Mary, was able to shoot in Steubenville, Ohio, whilst on our recent AirMaria field trip. Fr. Don Calloway is the Director of Vocations for the Marians of the Immaculate Conception. He has written two books on Mary and several CDs and DVDs and has participated in our International Symposium on Marian Coredemption. This week's interview is on Our Lady and how her role as Coredeemer is central to making sense of our greatest concern today, Suffering. Ave Maria!
Ave Maria! Corinn Dahm and Fra. Angelo Geiger, FI discuss the new vlog AirMaria**** and then talk about the culture of death and its rapid progress. Ave Maria!
With the doctrine of faith alone there is danger of a need to experience a felt assurance of salvation. This need leads to errors of presumption.

This vignette of the apparition of Our Lady to St. Catherine Laboure on the occasion of her request for the Medal was produced by the Franciscans of the Immaculate in conjunction with Susan Mackewich of Gizmo Productions and Dave Wroe.

Dr. Mark Miravalle gives us an update on current events concerning Our Lady and reponds to a question on The Blessed Virgin Mary, Mediatrix of All Graces. This March 31st, The Feast of the Annunciation (Easter is so early this year that the Easter week has moved the proper liturgical celebration to March 31st) the World Rosary Crusade for the 5th Marian Dogma will be taking place. Listen to other exciting news on this episode of MaryCast Specials! Ave Maria!
Tradition holds, and the Church teaches, that Our Lord first appeared to His Mother after His Resurrection. So when the Gospel writers say that our Lord first appeared to Mary Magdalen, this does not exclude the possibility that he appeared to His Mother before this.
He who has ate my bread has lifted his heel against me - in today’s Gospel Our Blessed Lord quotes this passage from the psalms, prophesying the treachery of Judas.
Christ can give the only true peace because He is the one who made the sacrifice and has risen from the dead to be with His Father. He gives the grace of this sacrifice through the sacraments and the teaching of the Church which he has guaranteed be giving Her the grace of infallibility centered on the pope. Ave Maria!
Mary is the New Eve who crushes the head of the serpent and thus contributes to the salvation of man just as the first Eve contributes to his down fall. Listen to this video as Fra Joseph explains how Jael and Judith play this role of serpent crushers and thus prefigure Mary who does the same with Her seed whom she bore through obedience. Ave Maria!
Catherine of Siena lived in a very difficult time for the Church. We too live in very difficult times. Times of confusion within the Church and times when it is very difficult to be a Catholic. Let us pray to St. Catherine to intercede for us during these very difficult times. Ave Maria!
Pius V worked strenuously to reform the Liturgy and the Clergy. Let us invoke him today, in times when the Liturgy is being abused and the Clergy is in need of reform. Ave Maria!
