Perspectives   Is a Devotion to Mary Optional?

May 27, 2011 - In this episode we are joined by two priests who have special devotions to Mary and who have been consecrated to Our Blessed Mother: Fr. Pawel Ratajczak, OMI and Fr. Daniel Mentesana, IVE.
Our question in this episode is: “Is a devotion to Mary optional?.” Most accept all Church teaching about Mary and understand the love we should have for her as the Mother of Jesus, but some are uncomfortable with some of the extreme expressions of that aspect of our Catholic faith.

In this episode of Perspectives: The Weekly Edition, we explore our devotion to Mary, why we have it and whether it’s necessary. In short, why do Catholics love Mary so much?
