For today’s feast on the traditional calendar, the Queenship of Mary, a previous comment from Archbishop Dennis Schnurr on devotion to Our Lady:
“We hold the Blessed Mother in such great esteem because of her great faith and because she played a key role in our redemption. Authentic Marian devotion is not a diversion; rather, it leads us to Jesus… I believe our faith lacks fullness if there is not an important place for the Blessed Mother in our prayer.”
