"... let us continue to entrust our future commitments to Mary. May Our Lady of Trust guiide the seminary and accompany the Living One, who vanquishes fear and givies peace (cf. Jn 20, 19). May she help you to imitate the Good Samaritan, who pours oil and wine over the wounds of those who live iin Rome or who come to Rome from every part of the world (cf. Lk 10: 29-36). May Mary teach gladness of spirit to every young man who crosses the threshold of the seminary." (p. 5)

Celebrating one hundred and fifty years.
The Missionaries of the Precious Blood have served as founders and caretakers of the Sorrowful Mother Shrine at Bellevue, Ohio. The founder of the Sorrowful Mother shrine, Fr. Francis de Sales Brunner came to the United States, he and his seven priests and seven seminarians or brothers came from Europe to minister to the German Catholic farmers already settled in northcentral and northwest Ohio. In a woodland west of the their first mission house at Peru, Ohio, Fr. Brunner established a shrine similar to a shrine named, "Maria Steig" in the Black Forest.

Trinity Heights is the #1 tourist attraction in Sioux City, Iowa. This is how the Sioux City Journal characterized the unique place of pilgrimage in Iowa. In 1999 the shrine received over 80,000 visitors from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and pilgrims from 31 other countries.
To celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary on October 7, 2000, the shrine hopes to complete a new grotto in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Early in 1999, Bishop DiNardo dedicated his Sioux City Diocese to Our Lady of Guadalupe. The image to our left is a sketch of the planned grotto.
The University of Dayton Music Department offers Biber's Rosary Sonatas: The Joyful Mysteries and other Marian Music. The music from the late 17th and early 18th century was recorded live on November 3, 1999.

A recent article in the Knights of Columbus April 2000 magazine, Columbia, concentrated on the religious persecution around the world. The caption of the moving image to our left states:
East Timorese women tend to a damaged statue of the Virgin Mary in the gutted compound of Bishop Carlos Belo last fall. Anti-independence militia men damaged the statue in retaliation for the Church's support of the independence movement in East Timor. (AP Photo/Richard Vogel)
If you are looking for a lighthearted approach to Marian teachings which are nevertheless solid try the book featured here. Doctrine is covered in a simple, basic form, and tucked here and there are explanations of customs and practices. Remember, the book is not meant to be a catechism, but a popular, readable access to a first encounter with Catholicisim. A favorite feature of this editor: S'ter says

On the fifth Saturday of Lent our Byzantine Catholic Church has a special service in honor of the most Pure Virgin Mary. This service, which is celebrated only in the Easter Church, is called Akathistos, a Greek word meaning not sitting. Hence, the name Akathistos Saturday. See our artiicle under: Akathist Hymn. For a text see our link under Marian Prayers
Mary Page continues to present a series of themes about the Blessed Mother culled from magisterial documents since Vatican II. The new theme will cover various aspects of Mary's personhood. An example below is derived from the document, Mary in Intellectual and Spiritual Formation:
Post-conciliar Mariology has given renewed attention to anthropology. ... In the convergence of the data of faith and the data of the anthropological sciences, when these turn their attention to Mary of Nazareth, one understands more clearly that the Virgin is both the highest historical realization of the Gospel (cf. III Conferencia General del Episcopado Latino-Americano (Puebla 1979), La evangelización en el presente y en el futuro de America Latina (Bogota 1979), 282), and the woman who, through her self-control, her sense of responsibility, her openness to others and to the spirit of service, her strength and her love, is the most completely realized on the human level. 15
