Thank you so much for all of the information on Mary.

During the period of study that preceded the conversion of my wife and I to the Catholic Church, one of the most beautiful and overarching theological concepts influencing us was this:

"Mary continually builds the Church and keeps it together. It is difficult to have devotion to our Lady and not feel closer to the other members of the mystical body and more united to its visible head, the pope. That’s why I like to repeat: All with Peter, to Jesus through Mary! By seeing ourselves as part of the Church and united to our brothers in the faith, we understand more deeply that we are brothers of all mankind, for the Church has been sent to all the peoples of the earth." St. Josemaria Escriva, "Christ is Passing By" (2002) Scepter Publishers (p. 198)
