Mary: not as goal, but guide


 "In Mary Immaculate we contemplate the reflection
of the Beauty that saves the world: 
the beauty of God resplendent on the Face of Christ. 
In Mary this beauty is totally pure,
humble, free of all pride and presumption."

~ Pope Benedict XVI


"Everything in Mary leads us toward her Son,
our only Savior, by whose foreseen merits she was preserved
immaculate and full of grace;

everything in Mary lifts up our hearts
to the praise of the Holy Trinity.

The Church sees Mary, then,
not as the goal, but as the guide,
who always leads souls who honor her
with true devotion – to her Son,
especially to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament."

Fr Paul Duffner, O.P.


Immaculate Heart of Mary,
cause of our joy, lead us and pray for us!
