Cool Marian Titles and Private Revelations

There have been a number of explanations under the OM of Mary's role as expressed in those titles, so it is more than the use of a title. However, it is not an infallible teaching (dogma). It may well fall under the non-infallible Magisterium.[/quote]

Yes, Ron. I meant what the titles denote according to papal explanations concerning
the role of Mary. I take it that Catholics are bound to give an ordinary assent to these
explanations or teachings concerning the passive, redemptive role of Mary. But because
her role as Mediatrix, co-Redemptrix, and Advocatrix has not yet been solemnly
defined as dogma, I find it hard to believe that the Blessed Virgin would herself use
these titles in her alleged appearances to several seers this past century. I for one
prefer a solemn definition and a certain explanation than an ambiguous title which most
Catholics have little or no idea of.
