Ave Maria, Gratia plena!

This blog is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is my hope that all Christians who visit this site - Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant or evangelical - will be encouraged, filled with joy but also challenged by the fact that they have not just a Father, but a Mother in Heaven.

For all who are seeking the deepest possible intimacy with God, with our Lord Jesus Christ, may we look nowhere else, in the end, than the one human being who has, since the Incarnation of Christ, experienced the most superlative closeness - physically and spiritually - to God-in-human-flesh. She is the Immaculate Conception, the Mother of Jesus Christ herself: the Daughter of God the Father, the Spouse of God the Holy Spirit, and the Mother of God the Son.

May the Immaculate Heart triumph!

Constant refuge of poor sinners, sweet consolation of broken and contrite hearts, tenderest mercy for the spiritually helpless. . . Mother Mary, your Immaculate Heart shall indeed triumph in the end, as you declared back in 1917!

Where there is strife, where there is opposition to the will of God, may your Immaculate Heart's intercession pierce through the darkness, to reveal the abyss of mercy into which all who seek the truth are invited to plunge.
