Ave Maria! At the Easter Vigil, when the Deacon sings out the Exultet of St. Ambrose, he intones those words which seem to undo the entire Franciscan thesis: "O happy fault, O necessary sin of Adam which gained for us such a redeemer." Does this prove the Franciscans wrong? Is Holy Mother Church inviting us to rejoice at Adam's fall? Find out in this episode. Links: Text and history of the Exultet: video series is based on the book A Primer on the "Absolute Primacy of Christ" by the host Fr. Maximilian M. Dean, FI Ave Maria!
