Activity of Mary from Heaven

– Answered by Father Johann Roten, S.M

Q: How is Mary active today?

A: Mary is active from heaven through her intimate relationship with Christ and with his Church. In prayer, liturgy, conversion or alms-giving, wherever God is earnestly sought, there is Mary to help, encourage and support, not for her own sake and purpose but because she loves all those who love her Son and his work as accomplished in the Church. You don't need an "active" apparition site to further your relation with God. The above-mentioned means are more solidly established ways, but if at this stage in your life you feel attracted by apparitions see for example the many apparition and shrine links on this website.
