The Popes on Mary - Mediatrix

Blessed Pope Pius IX, Ubi primum, 2 February 1849:
        God has committed to her the treasury of all good things, in order that everyone may know that through her are obtained every hope, every grace, and all salvation. For this is His will, that we obtain everything through Mary.


Pope Leo XIII, 22 September 1891:
        We may affirm that by the will of God, nothing is given to us without Mary's mediation, in such a way that just as no one can approach the Almighty Father but through His Son, so no one, so to speak, can approach Christ but through His Mother.


Pope Leo XIII, Adjutricem populi, 5 September 1895:
        O Virgin most holy, none abounds in the knowledge of God except through thee. None, O Mother of God, obtains salvation except through thee. None receives a gift from the throne of mercy except through thee.


Pope Saint Pius X, Encyclical of 2 February 1904:
        By the communion of sorrows and of will between Christ and Mary, she has deserved to become the dispenser of all the blessings which Jesus acquired for us by His blood.


Pope Pius XI, Address of 15 August 1933:
        God alone gives grace according to the measure which in His infinite wisdom He foresees. But although that grace comes from God, it is given through Mary, our Advocate and Mediatrix, since motherly affection on the one hand find response in childlike devotion on the other.


Pope Pius XI: Ingravescentibus malis 29 September 1937
        We beseech God through the mediation of the Blessed Virgin, so acceptable to Him, to use Saint Bernard's words: "Such is the will of God who has wished that we should have all things through Mary."


Pope Pius XII, Letter to Cardinal Maglione of 15 April 1940:
         Since as St. Bernard declares, "It is the will of God that we obtain all favors through Mary," let everyone hasten to have recourse to Mary...So powerful indeed is the Blessed Virgin with God and His only-Begotten Son that, as Dante writes, "anyone who desires His help and fails to have recourse to Mary is like one trying to fly without wings."


Pope Pius XII, Auspicia quaedam 1 May 1948
        May she who has given us Jesus, obtain for us that all those who have wandered from the path of truth may immediately return to Him motivated by salutary contrition. May she obtain for us -- for she is our kindest Mother, who has always shown herself, in the face of every danger, our powerful helper and channel of grace -- may she obtain for us, We say, a just solution, even in the midst of our gravest needs.
