Marian Devotion Points Us to Christ

“All generations will call me blessed”

– Luke 1:48

The Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC 971) teaches:

The Church’s devotion to the Blessed Virgin is intrinsic to Christian worship (Paul VI, MC 56). The Church rightly honors “the Blessed Virgin with special devotion. From the most ancient times the Blessed Virgin has been honored with the title of ‘Mother of God,’ to whose protection the faithful fly in all their dangers and needs…This very special devotion…differs essentially from the adoration which is given to the incarnate Word and equally to the Father and the Holy Spirit, and greatly fosters this adoration.” (LG 66)  The liturgical feasts dedicated to the Mother of God and Marian prayer, such as the rosary, an “epitome of the whole Gospel,” express this devotion to the Virgin Mary (Paul VI, MC 42).

Mary, Mother of our Savior, Pray for Us!

  1. My Gregory has a marian theory ;-) He said “praying to Mary is like looking up the answers in the back of the book because you get to the real answer faster.” He then told me the real answer was Jesus…but don’t be too impressed! He then said it should be okay to look up answers rather than doing his math problems! ;-) Oh, beautiful 6 year olds!

  2. Edifying article. To love our Mother Mary more deeply, we need to understand her person more. We need to study and reflect on her life, her virtues and qualities. Such numerous beautifully-written, well-researched articles help many to deepen their understanding, appreciation and love for our Mother Mary. Thank you so much for the post.
