“Mary Most Holy, the pure and immaculate Virgin, is for us a school of faith destined to guide us and give us strength on the path that leads us to the Creator of Heaven and Earth…take inspiration from her teachings, seek to welcome and to preserve in your hearts the enlightenment that she, by divine mandate, sends you from on high.”
-Pope Benedict XVI today at the shrine of Our Lady of Aparecida in Brazil.
Pope Benedict has been entrusting everyplace he goes to Our Blessed Mother and he has already dedicated his Pontificate and the Church to her motherly hands. His devotion and love of Mary is following right behind the example set by his beloved predecessor, John Paul the Great. Consequently, I wrote a paper on the Mariology of Joseph Ratzinger (Benedict XVI) which is going to be published in the near future. I will keep you informed when it happens.
Until then, keep Our Lady in your hearts where she so earnestly desires to be and heed her request to do whatever Christ tells you!
