The Role of the Virgin Mary in the Life of St. Theresa of Lisieux
Priests Witness to Marian Devotion
Fr. Christopher Armstrong, (Cincinnati) an S.T.D. graduate of the International Marian Research Institute, will present "Vers une compréhension spirituelle de la formation des évangiles: le rôle de la Sainte Vierge dans la vie de Thérèse de Lisieux" at Colloque avec Thérèse de l'Enfant-Jésus at Notre-Dame de Vie, Venasque, France, September 19-22, 1997.
Cardinal Swiatek was visibly moved as he recounted his priestly and Marian history, the whole of which had taken place, like Mary's, at the foot of the Cross. He commented on the "Totus Tuus" of John Paul II, who, he stressed, "with Marian affection" visits countless shrines during his numerous pilgrimages, always gives many catecheses and ends every Apostolic Letter and every document in Mary's name. "On the basis of our knowledge that we are sinners and in our response to Christ's gift from the Cross: "Behold, your mother," the Cardinal concluded, "we must be aware of our need to trust our Mother. Many saintly priests have lived this way, the Holy Father lives it."
