Our Lady Is the Universal Mediatrix
In the name of ecumenism, many Marian devotions, especially the doctrine of the universal mediation of Mary, have been put aside and silenced. It is good for us, therefore, to show how the opposite should be practiced and stressed by true Catholics, following the example of the great Saints of the past.

In his sermon for the Second Sunday of Advent, St. Bernard instructs the people “to go up to Jesus by Mary for Jesus came down to us by her.” It is the age-old doctrine of the Church, which has always honored the Virgin Mary as the Universal Mediatrix of all Graces.

St. Bernard of Clairvaux

A virgin shall conceive and bear a Son (Is &:14). ... It is now surely clear how the Virgin is the royal way by which the Savior has drawn near to us, coming forth from her virginal womb as a Bridegroom from His bridal chamber. Let us endeavor, therefore, to go up to Jesus by Mary, for Jesus came down to us by her. Let us seek His grace through her by whom He came to succor our need.

O blessed Finder of grace! O Mother of life! O Mother of salvation! May we through thee have access to thy Son. May He, who was given to us by thee, receive us by thee. May He admit thy purity and, for its sake, forgive our impurities. May He give us the pardon of our pride, because of the pleasure He took in thy humility. May thy abundant charity cover the multitude of our sins. May thy glorious fruitfulness get for us fruitfulness of merit.

Our Lady, our Mediatrix, our Advocate, reconcile us to thy Son, commend us to thy Son, present us to thy Son. O blessed Lady, through the grace thou hast found, through the prerogatives thou hast merited, through the mercy thou didst bring forth, grant us that by thy intercession, Jesus Who deigned to become, through thy maternity, partaker of our weakness and misery, may, through thy intercession, make us partakers of His glory and bliss.
