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.
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!
Ave Maria! In this episode of No Apologies Fra Joseph explains how Mary's salvific role is prefigured in the Old Testament by Queen Ester who saves her people from certain destruction. Let Fra Joseph take you on a fascinating journey into salvation history. Ave Maria!
Ave Maria! This week Fra Joseph explains how Mary is prefigured in the Old Testament by Rebecca the mother of Jacob and the husband of Isaac. Come see how he connects this story with the Marian Doctrines of the Coredemption and Mediatrix of All Graces. Ave Maria!
Ave Maria! In previous episodes Fra Joseph explained how different people in the Old Testament prefigured Mary. Today he describes how Mary is prefigured by three different things in the Old Testament: Noah's Ark, Jacob's Ladder and the Burning Bush. Noah's ark prefigures Mary's Immaculate Conception and Spiritual Maternity. Jacob's ladder is a sign of Mary's Mediation between heaven and earth. And, the burning bush prefigures how Mary conceived Jesus virginally and remained a virgin even through Jesus' birth. Listen to Fra Joseph as he gives this Biblical evidence of Catholic Marian Dogmas. Ave Maria!
Ave Maria! Fra Joseph Mary presents Mary as the queen Mother of Jesus and thus as the most powerful intercessor in heaven before Jesus on our behalf. Watch this video as Fra Joseph relates the Old Testamtent figures of King Solomon and Bathsheba, to Jesus and Mary. Ave Maria!
Ave Maria! Fra Joseph uses the simple and sound logic that if Jesus is God and Mary is the mother of Jesus then she is the Mother of God. Listen to Fra Joseph as he gives the first of four shows dedicated to the Marian doctrines solemnly defined by the Church, Divine Maternity, Perpetual Virginity, Immaculate Conception, and the Assumption. Stay tuned...!
Ave Maria! Fra Joseph uses Sacred Scripture, the writings of the Early Church Fathers, and common sense to explain the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This is the second of four shows dedicated to the Marian doctrines solemnly defined by the Church.
Ave Maria! In this week's episode Fra Joseph gives a clear and accessible explanation of the Catholic doctrine of the Divine Maternity of Mary. Come learn about one of Our Lady's greatest honors. Ave Maria!
