“Catholicism Live!” program on Catholic Television and Guadalupe Radio Network was on a woman from the Holy Land, born in Jerusalem, lived in Nazareth. She was a part of God’s plan of salvation and is known throughout the world, holding many titles. This woman is Mary, the Mother of God; mother of all humanity.
The following are quotes used on the program and some that we didn’t have time to share. So here they are! They are beautiful, and can easily be taken to heart and can lead us to contemplate the gift from our Heavenly Father: Mary!
“A Mother of all mothers – is needed to heal the wound from our mother, or any wound. … In order to heal it, Mary must be given to us as a Mother by Jesus, at the Cross.”
Fr. Marie Dominique Philippe +
“The Rosary, though clearly Marian in character, is at heart a Christ-centered prayer.”
John Paul II
“To pray the rosary is to hand over our burdens to the merciful hearts of Christ and his Mother. Through the Rosary, the faithful receive abundant grace, as through from the very hands of the Mother of the Redeemer.” John Paul II
“The Rosary when it is prayed in an authentic way, not mechanical and superficial but profoundly brings, in fact, peace and recnciliation. It contains within itself the healing power of the Most Holy name of Jesus, invoked with faith and love at the center of each “Hail Mary”.
Pope Benedict XVI
