Description: What does the Catholic Catechism teach us about the Church's devotion to the Virgin Mary? In no way, the Catechism states, does that devotion diminish "Our Lord's unique mediation. In fact, her role derives power from His role." The Catechism further asserts, "No creature could ever be counted along with the Incarnate Word and Redeemer, Jesus Christ, but just as the priesthood of Christ is shared, so is His mediation shared with the Blessed Mother....." Devotion to the Blessed Mother, the Catechism tells us, is intrinsic to Christian worship". This is Peggy Stanton and this has been the Order of Malta's Minute with the Catechism.
