Pope Benedict XVI's Marian Extracts

Marian Thoughts of Pope Benedict XVI

Extracts of papal pronouncements, comments and devotional expressions.

The Marian Library/International Marian Research Institute offers its readers ongoing information about papal pronouncements, comments and devotional expressions regarding Our Lady. These Marian sayings are searched and collected from the daily interventions of the Pope. They are published each month and represent a sum of the Pope's thinking and teaching about Mary.

It has been our ambition beginning with Pope Benedict XVI's pontificate in 2005 to research regularly everything the reigning Pope ever said about Mary.

View the Marian Thoughts of Pope Benedict XVI compiled from April 2005 through February 2013.
