In fact, Mary Most Holy, being united with the Redeemer"under Him and with Him," as Vatican II teaches (LG 56)reconciled humanity with God through the sacrificial offering consummated on Calvary; and after Calvary she continues unceasingly to reconcile man to God with her Mediation and Distribution of all the graces of Redemption. Consequently, she is proclaimed the Mother of universal reconciliation.

("Above all gifts that Christ gives his beloved is that of overcoming self"St Francis Assisi)
The spiritual director of St. Pio of Pietrelcina, Fr. Benedict of San Marco, once told St. Pio in a letter of spiritual direction that his particular vocation was a "vocation to coredeem" by means of the daily trials, battles, sufferings, and toils coming from the exercise of his ministry.
This is very helpful and confirms my 'take' on the whole co-redemption thing. I think every Xtian is called to co-redeem in some way.

Just my opinion, have the RM remove 8, 9 and the last one and keep the caucus designation.

I hope the record is adequately clear here: None of this involves referring to Mary as “Redemptrix.” Claims to the contrary are false.
