Session 8

Mary's Place in Our Lives

From Marian Culture to Spirituality

Efforts have been made, some successful, to bring back Marian devotion to our Church. Is this sufficient to promote an authentic Marian culture leading to and motivating a new understanding and practice of Marian spirituality?

On April 5, 2019, the forum began promptly via teleconference at 2:30 p.m. Eastern time (United States). After a brief introduction, each presenter gave his or her presentation. The session concluded with open discussion and final remarks at 4:30 p.m. Eastern time.
