Great site. St. Charles of

Great site. St. Charles of Borromero is only about 40 minutes from my house and all of 2 minutes from my Aunt's home.

I see no problem with paragraph 969. Whatever issue one may think they have is clarified in paragraph 970. "Mary's function as mother of men in no way obscures or diminishes this unique mediation of Christ, but rather shows its power. But the Blessed Virgin's salutary influence on men . . . flows forth from the superabundance of the merits of Christ, rests on his mediation, depends entirely on it, and draws all its power from it."

The official teaching of the Catholic Church is stated here and clearly puts 100% of the power of salvation on Christ's shoulders. The Catholic church, the Protestant founders, the early Church fathers, and most Christians through history also knew Mary to have a special and blessed place in salvation. She was given many graces and is charged by Jesus with certain tasks that she is only capable of doing with His power.

Recent protestant theologians decided to toss the traditions established by the Apostles for whatever motives and sadly now it results in many Protestant preferring to show scorn for Mary to make sure none think they are affording her any of the favor that is suggested by both Scripture and Apostolic teaching.
