We also see how other themes, in a certain sense new ones, have been introduced in equally perfect harmony with the theological developments of the present day.
These are the biblical, liturgical, ecumenical and anthropological elements to be taken into consideration when teaching Marian doctrine. Notify me of new comments via email. With regard to Mary, these liturgies celebrate it as a feast of the new Eve, the obedient and faithful virgin, who with her generous “fiat” cf.
Such a study will bring out in particular the hidden relationship between the Spirit of God and the Virgin of Nazareth, and show the influence they exert on the Church.
In consequence of these phenomena some people are becoming disenchanted with devotion to the Blessed Virgin and finding it difficult to take as an example Mary of Nazareth because the horizons of her life, so they say, seem rather restricted in comparison with the vast spheres of activity open to mankind today.
PL Fribourg Editions Universitaires,p. Roman Missal, 15 August, Preface.
But anyone who, with trust in God reflects upon these phenomena discovers that many tendencies of modern piety for example, the interiorization of religious sentiment are meant to play their part in the culrus of Christian piety in general and devotion to the Blessed Virgin in particular. We are upheld by the hope that the directives issued in order to render this devotion ever more cltus and vigorous will be applied with sincerity. Section two gives four guidelines for devotion to Mary which have since become the key orientation in the teaching process about Mary.
Thre is a LOT of modernism in this one.
Marialis Cultus by Pope John VI
It was with a view to Christ that God the Father from all eternity chose her to be the all-holy Mother and adorned her with gifts of the Spirit granted to no one else. Observations ucltus Two Exercises of Piety: Peter, we have constantly worked to increase the worship of Mary culto mariano ” [per il retto ordinamento e sviluppo del culto della beata Vergine Maria – esortazione apostolica di Sua Santita Paolo VII, Page 2 ] ” The same is happening in our cultu time.
Jerome, Adversus Iovinianum I, Mary is also the Virgin-Mother-she who “believing and obeying The fundamental characteristics of the Rosary, its culrus elements and their mutual relationship have all emerged more clearly from these congresses and from the research carried out.
That is, she has noted the continuity of the fundamental offering that the Incarnate Word made to the Father when He entered the world cf. Comfort, confidence, hope and joy are the sentiments which we wish to transform into fervent praise and thanksgiving to the Lord as we unite our voice with that of the Blessed Virgin in accordance with the prayer of the Roman Liturgy.
For Catholics, devotion to the Mother of Christ and Cultua of Christians is cutlus a natural and frequent opportunity for seeking her intercession with her Son in order to obtain the union of all the baptized within a single People of God.

It will make this devotion solidly based, with the consequence that study of the sources of Revelation and attention to the documents of the magisterium will prevail over the exaggerated search for novelties or extraordinary phenomena.
In this way these elements gain in importance, since they are found in the context of Bible readings, illustrated with a homily, accompanied by silent pauses and emphasized with song. The Rosary is an excellent prayer, but the faithful should feel serenely free in its regard. We, too, from the first general audience of fultus pontificate on July 13,have shown our great esteem for the pious practice of the Rosary.
It will also contribute to increasing the worship due to Christ Himself, since, according to the perennial mind of the Church authoritatively repeated in our own day, “what is given to the handmaid is referred to the Lord; thus what is given to the Mother redounds to the Son; May my soul receive Jesus through the Holy Spirit by whom your flesh conceived Jesus Thus our own time, faithfully attentive to tradition and to the progress of theology and the sciences, will make its contribution of praise to her whom, according to her own prophetical words, all generations will call blessed cf.

It sometimes happens that novenas or similar practices of piety are inserted into the very celebration of the Eucharistic Sacrifice. I’ve gone over the Encyclical and I know that there’s perfectly sound Church teaching and terminology contained in it.
In this way the unfathomable riches of these mysteries are unfolded. We wish to emphasize the fact that the veneration which the universal Church today accords to blessed Mary is a derivation from and an extension and unceasing increase of the devotion that the Church of every age has paid to her, with careful attention to truth and with an ever watchful nobility of expression.
In the revised ordering of the Christmas period it seems to us that the attention of all should be directed towards the restored Solemnity of Mary the holy Mother of God. With regard to Christ, the East and the West, in the inexhaustible riches of their liturgies, celebrate this solemnity as the commemoration of the salvific “fiat” of the Incarnate Word, who, entering the world, said: Therefore, venerable Brothers, as we consider the piety that the liturgical Tradition of the universal Church and the renewed Roman Rite expresses towards the holy Mother of God, and as we remember that the liturgy through its pre-eminent value as worship constitutes the golden norm for Christian piety, and finally as we observe how the Church when she celebrates the sacred mysteries assumes an attitude of faith and love similar to that of the Virgin, we realize the rightness of the exhortation that the Second Vatican Council addresses to all the children of the Church, namely “that the cult, especially the liturgical cult, of the Blessed Virgin be generously fostered.
And the liturgy, which receives approval and strength from the magisterium, is a most lofty expression and an evident proof of this living Tradition. Mariae, Sermo III, 2: Lectionary, For refugees and exiles Gospel, 1 Mt 2: This is an orientation that we confirm and which we hope to see accepted and followed everywhere.
In concluding these observations, which give proof of the concern and esteem which the Apostolic See has for the Rosary of the Blessed Virgin, we desire at the same time to recommend that this very worthy devotion should not be propagated in a way that is too one-sided or exclusive. These are to be borne in mind in any revision of exercises of piety or in the creation of new ones, in order to emphasize and accentuate the bond which unites us to her who is the Mother of Christ and our Mother in the communion of saints.
Pius V and authoritatively taught by him, consists of various elements disposed in an organic fashion: The Second Vatican Council has pointed out how the family, the primary and vital cell of society, “shows itself to be the domestic sanctuary of the Church through the mutual affection of its members and the common prayer they offer to God.
It is a feast of her destiny of fullness and blessedness, of the glorification of her immaculate soul and of her virginal body, of her perfect configuration to the Risen Christ; a feast that sets before the eyes of the Church and of all mankind the image and the consoling proof of the fulfillment of their final hope, namely, that this full glorification is the destiny of all those whom Christ has made His brothers, having “flesh and blood in common with them” Heb.
On the other hand it has been noted that this development occurred at a time-the last period of the Middle Ages-when the liturgical spirit was in decline and the faithful were turning from the liturgy towards a devotion to Christ’s humanity and to the Blessed Virgin Mary, a devotion favoring a certain external sentiment of piety.
To this our predecessors have devoted close attention and care.
Such devotion to the Blessed Virgin is firmly rooted in the revealed word and has solid dogmatic foundations. This section is a bit heady marilis read. That the Blessed virgin is an exemplar in this field derives from the fact that she is recognized as a most excellent exemplar of the Church in the order of faith, charity and perfect union with Christ, 43 that is, of that interior disposition with which the Church, the beloved spouse, closely associated with her Lord, invokes Christ and through Him worships the eternal Father.
All times are GMT This hope of ours is strengthened by a remark of our predecessor Leo XIII, who wrote that the cause of Christian unity “properly pertains to the role of Mary’s spiritual motherhood.
