  • Can anyone help me with these words:

    "De Condigno"
    Used in the sentence: "...though Mary merited heaven de condigno  she could not merit the incarnation..."


    Thanks in advance :)

    EDIT: to read, "Condigno"

  • This is the merit due in justice, in opposition to congruous merit (de congruo) which is given only in equity.

    Consult a treatise on grace for more information!

    This is a very important point to understand if we are to properly esteem Our Lady's Divine Maternity. She could not have merited the Incarnation nor the consequent divine maternity, as positing the contrary would involve a serious error.

    Rev. Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange explains in his work The Mother of the Saviour and Our Interior Life [La mère du sauveur et notre vie intérieure] (Trans. Rev. Fr. Bernard J. Kelley; Dublin: Golden Eagle Books, Ltd., 1948):






    Elsewhere in the work, he elucidates upon an objection that arises regarding how the Incarnation of the Eternal Word was dependent upon the Fiat of Our Lady:





    ------------------------------------------------


    It is important to understand how exactly the Blessed Virgin did merit for us in her co-operation in the Mysteries of the Redemption wrought by the Incarnate Word. Rev. Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange in the aforementioned work explains the principles that will help us understand:


















    As Pyrrhos said, the question regarding merits de condigno as opposed to merits de congruo is treated by the theologians in the treatise De Gratia, one of the most befuddling of theological treatises together with the treatise on predestination.
    Please ignore all that I have written regarding sedevacantism.
