From the Universal Catechism of the Catholic Church:

II. DEVOTION TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN
971 “All generations will call me blessed”: “The Church’s devotion to the Blessed Virgin is intrinsic to Christian worship.” [Lk 1:48; 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. [Cf. Paul VI, MC 42; SC 103]

 

These presentations on the Blessed Virgin Mary were given to members of the parish, and especially the Legion of Mary of the parish, 12/10/2011.

The main references we used were,

  • The “Consecration” presentation: True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary,with the subtitle Preparation for the Coming of the Kingdom of Christ, by St. Louis De Montfort;
  • and for the “Immaculate Conception” presentation: Mary in the Mystery of the Covenant, by Ignace de la Potterie, S.J. (NY, 1992).
