Jeg vil opfordre dig til at meditere på det sidste kapitel af forfatningen af Det andet Vatikankoncil om Kirken, Lumen Gentium (n. 58), der taler om Maria i mysteriet om Kristus og i Kirken.

Let us ask Our Lady to protect and sustain us; that we may have a strong, joyful and merciful faith; that she may help us to be saints, to meet her one day in Paradise.  08/16/2019

Mary's journey to Heaven began with that "yes" pronounced at Nazareth. Every “yes” to God is a step towards Heaven, towards eternal life. Because the Lord wants us all with Himself, in His house!  08/15/2019

Today, the Feast of #OurLadyofMountCarmel, we contemplate the Virgin who stands beside the Cross of Christ. That is also the place of the Church: close to Christ.  16.07.2019

Holy#MaryMotherOfTheChurch, help us to entrust ourselves fully to Jesus and to believe in His love, especially in times of trial, beneath the shadow of the Cross, when our faith is called to mature. 06/10/2019

Contemplating Mary allows us to turn our gaze to all those many women, mothers and grandmothers who, by their quiet sacrifices, devotion and self-denial, are shaping the present and preparing the way for tomorrow’s dreams. #ApostolicJourney #Romania  05/31/2019

Mary is a woman who walks with the grace and the tenderness of a mother; she unties all the knots of the many problems we manage to create, and she teaches us to stand upright in the midst of storms. #MaryHelpOfChristians  05/24/2019

We pray for the Catholics in China. May Our Lady of Sheshan help them witness to the faith, in communion with the universal Church, and to persevere in unity despite the wounds and the trials, trusting in the hope that does not disappoint.   05/24/2019.
