Will Pope Declare Mary of Rome Co-Redeemer?

Will Pope Francis acknowledge the Holy Mother as the 'Co-Redemptrix' at Fatima this year?

On January 1, 2017, the Theological Commission of the International Marian Association (IMA) released a 10-page document titled "The Role of Mary in Redemption: A Document of the Theological Commission of the International Marian Association."

The document served as a request for Pope Francis to "publicly acknowledge and honor Mary, the Mother of  Jesus, as the 'Co-redemptrix with Jesus the Redeemer" during the 2017 centenary anniversary of the Marian Apparitions at Fatima, Portugal.

...Mary's Immaculate Conception prepares her to be the perfect human partner with Jesus the Redeemer.

...The development of the doctrine of Mary's Coredemption with Jesus within Tradition begins with the early Church concept of the "New Eve"; Mary's united suffering with Jesus at Calvary and the "Redemptrix" title (10th century); Mary's compassion and being "co-crucified" with Jesus (12th century); the "Co-redemptrix" title (15th century); the "golden age" of Co-redemptrix (17th century), leading to its 19th century official teaching

  1. Mary Co-redemptrix proclaims to the world that suffering is redemptive when united to the sufferings of Christ.
  2. The year 2017 commemorates the centenary anniversary of the historic apparitions of Our Lady of the Rosary at Fatima, which is in itself constitutes a powerful manifestation of Our Lady's Coredemption in action...

Is The Mary of Rome The Mary of the Bible
