Friday, May 31, 1963 THE PROGRESS7 I God required of her that she freely and whole-heartedly join in the sacrifice of her Son. And, as always, she complied perfectly with the will of God, Thus, Mary not only gave Christ to the world, she also gave him back to his Father, receiving in exchange the whole sinful race which had been the cause of his death. By this heroic act of surrender Mary re- ceived an added right to the title of Mother of Man, Mother of the Mystical Body of Christ. We have already seen under "God the Son" that Mary is truly the Mother of God. We have also seen that this great dignity made it fitting for Mary to be conceived without the stain of Original Sin and also that she did not have to suffer death, the great punishment inflicted upon mankind as the result of original sin. We have seen Mary's role in' the Incarnation, now let us see her role in the Mystical Body of her Son. Mary The Mother of The Mystical Body Mary's role or place in the Mystical Body ought by now to be quite clear. Mary, as the mother of Christ, is the mother of the Mystical Body of Christ. Titles of Our Lady Why our Lady merits the title, Mother of the Mystical Body of Christ, as well as most of Mary's other titles, stems from three basic facts: 1) It was she from whom the Second Divine Person took his human nature. She is the mother of Christ, our brother, and there- fore the mother of all men. 2) By her complete identifica- tion with and acceptance of the offering Christ made of himself on the cross, Mary cooperated in our redemption, thereby ac- quiring an added right to the title of mother of all men. 3) All the graces which Christ won for us by his death on the cross, and which he as Head applies to the members of his Mystical Body, are distributed through her maternal interces- sion. Other titles of our Lady stem- ming from these three facts: "Queen of Heaven and Earth." Certainly, in the full and strict meaning of the term, only Jesus Christ, the God-Man, is king; but Mary, as mother of the di- vine Christ, as his associate in the redemption, in his struggle with his enemies and his final victory over them, has .a share, though in a limited and analo- gous way, in his royal dignity. "Co-Redemptrix". She, who corporally was the mother of our Head, through the added title of pain and glory became spiri- tually the mother of all his mem- bers. She it was who through her powerful prayers obtained the grace that the Spirit of our Divine Redeemer, already given to the Church on the cross, s h o u 1 d be bestowed through miraculous gifts on the newly founded hierarchy on Pentecost. Bearing with courage and con- fidence the tremendous burden of her sorrows and desolation, truly Queen of Martyrs, she more than all the faithful "filled up those things that are wanting of the suffering of Christ . . . for His Body which is the Church;" and she continues to show for the Mystical Body of Christ, born from the pierced heart of the Saviour, the same mother's care and ardent love with which she clasped the In- fant Jesus to her warm and nourishing breast. (Enc. on the Mystical Body). "Mediatrix of All Graces" From her union with Christ she attains a radiant eminence transcending that of any other creature; from her union with Christ she receives the royal right to dispose of the treasures of the Divine Redeemer's king- dom; from her union with Christ, finally, is derived the inexhaust- ible efficacy of her maternal in- tercession before the Son and his Father . . . For if through his humanity the Divine Word per- forms miracles and gives graces, if he used his sacraments and saints as instruments for the sal- vation of men, why should he not make use of the role and the work of his most holy mother in imparting to us the fruits of the redemption? (Enc. on Queenship of Mary). Membership In The Mystical Body In Baptism, the breath of supernatural life entered our souls and we became members of Christ's Mystical Body. By na- tural birth, we entered into the life of man; by Baptism we en- tered into the life of grace. The Church Militant The members of the Mystical Body who still live here on this earth belong to what is called the Church Militant, that is, those who are striving to obtain everlasting life. The members of the Church Militant, aided by Christ their Head, are still strug- gling for the graces necessary to overcome temptation, repair the damage of sin, and enter for- ever into heaven with God and His saints. Though the word "Church" is usually associated with the Church on earth, it is also used in a broader sense to include the souls in purgatory and the saints in heaven. The Church In Heaven In a broader sense the Church is in heaven as well as on earth. Those who have co-operated with the grace of the Holy Ghost, and who in life died in the state of sanctifying grace have, through the merits gained for all by Christ's death and resurrection, entered into the life of the Church in heaven, called the Church Triumphant. W i t h Christ, in Him, and through Him they triumphed over death and their immortal souls are united forever with God in the ever- lasting joy of His saints. The Church In Purgatory The community of the spiri- tual goods of the Church ex- tends also to those souls that have been saved, but which must yet pay in purgatory for the debt of punishment due to sin. Noth- ing defiled can enter heaven. The souls in purgatory, being in the state of grace therefore be- long to the Church Suffering. By the intense pain of purgatory, they are atoning for the punish- ment due to their sins on earth. The Communion of Saints Just as the Church Militant is referred to as the Mystical Body of Christ on earth, so the union which exists among the faithful on earth, the souls in purgatory, and the saints in heaven is refer- red to as the Communion of Saints. This is a communion or sharing in s pir i t u a 1 goods. Through this communion the faithful on earth can help each other, relieve the Church Suffer- ing, and honor the saints. The saints in turn can intercede for the Church Suffering and help us on earth. By the communion of Saints is meant the union of the faithful on earth, the blessed in heaven, and the souls in pur- gatory, with Christ as their head. The blessed in heaven com- prise the "Church Triumphant"; the souls in purgatory, the "Church Suffering"; and the faithful on earth, the "Church Militant". The Holy Spirit's Great Love For Us This section has seen the marvelous way in which God has provided for the preserva- tion of His Kingdom the Church. It has been the specific role of the Holy Spirit to guide and pre- serve the Church, to make the means of salvation available to men of every age. As we have seen, the new and perfect society of the Catholic Church with its TRADITION, SAINTS, POPE, MASS AND SACRAMENTS, is far more than just a human so- ciety. It is Jesus Christ living in the world today, living in and through His members who de- rive His life from the five basic organs of divine life mentioned above. Yet all of this would be im- possible without the power of the Holy Spirit. For the Holy Spirit is the Soul and vitalizing principle of the Mystical Body. The only possible motive why the Holy Spirit of God wills to dwell night and day with men, guiding, guarding, preserving and protecting them--the only motive that could account for Groups Install New Officers Everett Young Ladies Institute -- A dance will be held Saturday, June I, to welcome new mem- bers.
