"Our Lady of America... visionary reported that St. Joseph said about himself: 'I became, in union with my holy spouse, co-redemptor of the human race. Through compassion for the sufferings of Jesus and Mary I co-operated, as no other, in the salvation of the world.' Of course, Joseph means this in the sense that Mary and Joseph are 'auxiliary' co redeemers and not equal co-redeemers with Jesus." - Fr. Regis Scanlon

Catholic revert Milo Yiannopoulos recently said St. Joseph is his “spiritual father figure" and he "noted how consecrating oneself to St. Joseph was a way in which to suitably commit to a chaste lifestyle."

The disciple of the Apostle John named St. Ignatius called St. Joseph "the father given to Him [Jesus]" by God the Father.

Might the “spiritual father figure" St. Joseph, who co-operated in salvation history, be called a co-redeemer?

Does St. Joseph have the same mission as Joseph of the Old Testament?

In a dream, the Old Testament Joseph was told how to save Egypt and therefore later he could bring the people of God into that country to save them from death by famine.

In a dream, St. Joseph was told how to save the people of God which consisted of Jesus and Mary by bringing them to Egypt to save them from being killed by King Herod.

What did a disciple of the Apostle John who Jesus made the son of Mary (and Joseph) on the cross say about St. Joseph?

The disciple of the Apostle John named St. Ignatius (30-107) wrote:

"Unknown to thee [Satan]... the removal into Egypt... the name [Joseph] of the father given to Him [Jesus] who did not beget."
(The Ante-Nicene Fathers, Epistle of Ignatius to the Philippians, Chap. VIII. - Continuation Ignorance of Satan, American Reprint of Edinburgh Edition)

The early Church Father St. Ignatius called St. Joseph "the father given to Him [Jesus]" by God the Father who Satan is powerless against in "remov[ing Jesus] into Egypt" to save Him from the murderous Herod.

As the Old Testament dreamer Joseph was the protector of the people of God, so is the dreamer St. Joseph now the protector of the New Testament people of God: Jesus, Mary and the Church?

And so now, as the secular and Church Herods, in this greatest Church crisis in salvation history, are trying to kill the people of God - the Church, again; might St. Joseph, the protector of the Church, also be a co-redeemer?

Here is theologian Fr. Regis Scanlon's take on the above question:

Recently, when six U.S bishops met to consider the efficacy of devotion to Our Lady of America, they rejected the devotion — not because it contained “doctrinal error” — but because the visionary reported that St. Joseph said about himself: “I became, in union with my holy spouse, co-redemptor of the human race. Through compassion for the sufferings of Jesus and Mary I co-operated, as no other, in the salvation of the world.” Of course, Joseph means this in the sense that Mary and Joseph are “auxiliary” co redeemers and not equal co-redeemers with Jesus. Without further explanation, it appears that the bishops declared that the entire vision could not be supported for general public devotion just because the statement about St. Joseph was an “error.”

But why is the statement incorrect?

St. Joseph saved the pregnant Mother of God from being stoned by law and saved the baby Jesus from Herod’s massacre. He dedicated his entire life to taking care of Jesus and Mary. If this doesn’t reveal St. Joseph’s co-operation in the history of salvation, what does?

Beyond that, St. Joseph has the same duty as every Christian in the salvation process. Each one of us must participate in God’s redemptive plan, which, quite literally, by God’s design, makes us co redeemers.

This truth that each one of us must freely choose to be saved is contained in Sacred Scripture and the Sacred Tradition of the Church. Jesus said: “But whoever shall deny Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven” (Matt 10:33). And the Second Vatican Council says in no. 14 of the Dogmatic Constitution on the Church: “Whosoever, therefore, knowing that the Catholic Church was made necessary by Christ, would refuse to enter or to remain in it, could not be saved.”

So, one has to say “yes” to Jesus in order to be saved. Without that yes Jesus cannot save us. That “yes” may be infinitesimally small compared to Jesus’ act of redemption but it is our own. It is something we freely must do. Each Christian that becomes saved, and hopefully that includes you and I, are a co-redeemer of ourselves.


So, it would be good if the 6 bishops offered a further explanation as to why the statement that St. Joseph is a co-redeemer is an “error.” It would be helpful to lay people to know exactly what is incorrect about the statement.

Personally, I believe that the 6 bishops who say that it is an “error” to refer to St. Joseph as a co-redeemer do not really object to the idea that St. Joseph cooperated in the redemption of the world. Rather, they were probably objecting to the attempt to create a special title “St. Joseph as Co-redeemer.” Nor do I believe that the visions of the Our Lady of America was expressing more than the teaching of St. John Paul II in no. 20 of “Guardian of the Redeemer” that “there can be no doubt but that Joseph approached as no other person ever could that eminent dignity whereby the Mother of God towers above all creatures.” Our Lady was saying that, after herself, no other person co-operated more than St. Joseph in the salvation of the world.

Yiannopoulos appears to confirm that St. Joseph may be an "'auxiliary' co redeemer... not equal co-redeemers with Jesus" in his return to the Catholic faith:

Yiannopoulos mentioned how he was pointed to the {St. Joseph] devotion by a friend: “there are these moments where everything just seems to hang together so perfectly and to align so beautifully.”

He noted how consecrating oneself to St. Joseph was a way in which to suitably commit to a chaste lifestyle, focussed on combatting “gender identity madness.” As such, “as an entry point into this way of living, St. Joseph was kind of the perfect point of commonality with all of the things that have preoccupied me professionally and spiritually, as the patriarch, as the spiritual father, as the head of the holy family.”

Nor is Yiannopoulus alone in his decision. He mentioned how the devotion to St. Joseph is often recommended by pious people, for any man who is a “philanderer…or have some sort of runaway sexual appetite as a man,” in order that one might “come to Christ through St. Joseph because of his perfect representation of virtuous masculinity, and of the heroic manly virtues.”

[... ]

“That’s what I’ve always aspired to be professionally, to the disaffected young men that I’ve always been speaking to through my journalism,” he said, adding, “whether I’m talking about men who give up on women and disappear into porn or video games, or whether it’s Gamergate.”

Yiannopoulos indicated that this devotion to St. Joseph was also a timely and important one for the modern age, since “there’s this huge religious revival among young conservatives at the moment, who unfortunately are looking at the Catholic Church and seeing a sick, corrupted, degenerate institution, and saying ‘nope,’ and instead looking East and getting drawn into Eastern Orthodox Church.”

“I felt that he [St. Joseph] was the perfect person for me to do this with, publicly, because it just seemed to be very congruent with how I feel about what’s lacking in the world, and what I would like to see more of in myself.” [https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/ex-gay-milo-yiannopoulos-reveals-importance-of-st-joseph-due-to-his-perfect-representation-of-virtuous-masculinity]

Francis Notes:

- Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation:

"[T]he Pope... WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic, he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him, or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See."
(The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306)


Saint Robert Bellarmine, also, said "the Pope heretic is not deposed ipso facto, but must be declared deposed by the Church."

The AAS guidelines explicitly allows "sexually active adulterous couples facing 'complex circumstances' to 'access the sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist.'"

-  On February 2018, in Rorate Caeli, Catholic theologian Dr. John Lamont:

"The AAS statement... establishes that Pope Francis in Amoris Laetitia has affirmed propositions that are heretical in the strict sense."

- On December 2, 2017, Bishop Rene Gracida:

"Francis' heterodoxy is now official. He has published his letter to the Argentina bishops in Acta Apostlica Series making those letters magisterial documents."

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church by the bishops by the grace of God.

Might it be Good for all of us & for Francis to Read about the "Gruesome Death of Arius"?

  I have read the letters of your piety , in which you have requested me to make known to you the events of my times relating to myself, and to give an account of that most impious heresy of the Arians , in consequence of which I have endured these sufferings, and also of the manner of the death of Arius . With two out of your three demands I have readily undertaken to comply, and have sent to your Godliness what I wrote to the Monks; from which you will be able to learn my own history as well as that of the heresy . But with respect to the other matter, I mean the death, I debated with myself for a long time, fearing lest any one should suppose that I was exulting in the death of that man. But yet, since a disputation which has taken place among you concerning the heresy , has issued in this question, whether Arius died after previously communicating with the Church ; I therefore was necessarily desirous of giving an account of his death, as thinking that the question woul
