It’s time for a “Solemnity of the Assumption”-themed Catholic Exchange Forum!
You know the guidelines (which in fact apply to all comments at CE):
-keep it as short and streamlined as possible
-keep it on the subject
-be respectful of other people’s human dignity
The question for this week is:
The Catholic Church has four official Marian Doctrines (Mother of God, Ever Virgin, Immaculate Conception, and the Assumption). It has been suggested that a fifth one (Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate) has always been implicit in Catholic belief and ought to be officially proclaimed. Agree? Disagree? Why or why not?
