Editor's Preface, Thomas A. Thompson

Marian Studies

The 65th annual meeting of the Mariological Society of America took place, May 20–23, 2014, at Viterbo University (La Crosse, Wisconsin). The program, entitled “Forty Years after Marialis Cultus: Retrieval or Renewal,” was devoted to this significant document on Marian devotion issued by Paul VI in 1974. We were welcomed to the Diocese of La Crosse by Bishop Patrick Callahan: “For forty years,” he noted, “Pope Paul VI’s Apostolic Exhortation Marialis Cultus has led us deeper in the worship and love of God through the Blessed Virgin Mary, His chosen Vessel of Honor. … My prayer is that your ...

The Contributions Of Leo Cardinal Scheffczyk To Mariology After Vatican Ii, Emery De Gaál May 2014

The Contributions Of Leo Cardinal Scheffczyk To Mariology After Vatican Ii, Emery De Gaál

Marian Studies

The shortest way to introduce Leo Scheffczyk (1920–2005) to an American theological audience is probably to state that he is “the European Avery Dulles.” Such a generalization is incorrect and yet contains a kernel of truth. At the same consistory in 2001, both master theologians were created cardinals by St. John Paul II. It is also most indicative of their contributions to theology that this date coincided with the 200th birthday of Blessed Cardinal John Henry Newman (1801–90), who informed their thinking in central ways. Incidentally, this was also Scheffczyk’s eighty-first birthday. In addition, both were prolific ...


Feminist And New Feminist Perspectives On Mary: Renewal Or Retrieval?, Gloria Falcão Dodd May 2014

Feminist And New Feminist Perspectives On Mary: Renewal Or Retrieval?, Gloria Falcão Dodd

Marian Studies

Combining the idea of a priest’s spiritual marriage to the Church and Pope Paul VI’s title for Mary as Mother of the Church, Pope Francis joked with a group of seminarians: “If you don’t go to Our Lady as Mother, you certainly will have her as a mother-in-law! And this isn’t good.” In the midst of the many changes after Vatican Council II, Paul VI had observed the need to prevent misunderstandings, such as viewing Our Lady as a mother-in-law rather than a mother, or diminishing Marian devotion. Therefore, Paul VI wrote his 1974 encyclical, Marialis ...

Anthropological Aspects Of Marian Devotion For The Formation Of The 'Feminine Genius', Danielle Peters May 2014

Anthropological Aspects Of Marian Devotion For The Formation Of The 'Feminine Genius', Danielle Peters

Marian Studies

It is commonly accepted that devotio, as an act of virtue of religion and distinguished from devotional practices, implies a stable interior disposition and readiness to serve God joyfully and generously. Accordingly, authentic Marian devotion equips heart, mind and will to be receptive for a deeper understanding and fulfillment of God’s ways in imitation and through the intercession of Our Lady. Marialis Cultus, 34, denotes that “Devotion to the Blessed Virgin must also pay close attention to certain findings of the human sciences.”

Forty years after Marialis Cultus (MC) and twenty-five years after St. John Paul II’s Apostolic ...


The Marian Spirituality Of 'Lumen Gentium' And The Renewal Of Marian Devotion In The Church Today, Mary Mccaughey May 2014

The Marian Spirituality Of 'Lumen Gentium' And The Renewal Of Marian Devotion In The Church Today, Mary Mccaughey

Marian Studies

While Marian devotion is alive today, its contemporary expression differs from the form it took before the Second Vatican Council and has developed since. My paper will explore the present state of Marian devotion—forty years after the publication of Marialis Cultus by Pope Paul VI, and fifty years after the Second Vatican Council—and consider how the form of devotion that exists today, understood with reference to the ecclesiology of Lumen Gentium, might better be interpreted as a Marian spirituality. While some might disagree that there is such a concept as a Marian Spirituality at all, my paper will ...


St. Louis De Montfort: Priest Of Jesus Christ And Preacher Of True Devotion To Mary, Frederick L. Miller May 2014

St. Louis De Montfort: Priest Of Jesus Christ And Preacher Of True Devotion To Mary, Frederick L. Miller

Marian Studies

In this paper, I shall focus on St. Louis de Montfort, the Priest, and on the Blessed Virgin Mary’s role in his life and preaching. Montfort’s incorporation of Mary into his preaching of the Gospel, in my estimation, is important for all seminarians and priests engaged in active ministry. St. Louis de Montfort is also the special patron of the Legion of Mary, which remains among the largest apostolic movements in the Church. Not only does his teaching provide the specific spirituality for the Legion of Mary, but his zeal as a missionary has molded members of the ...


Pope Paul Vi And Ignacio Maria Calabuig: The Virgin Mary In The Liturgy And The Life Of The Church, Thomas A. Thompson May 2014

Pope Paul Vi And Ignacio Maria Calabuig: The Virgin Mary In The Liturgy And The Life Of The Church, Thomas A. Thompson

Marian Studies

On this fortieth anniversary of Marialis Cultus, we wish to commemorate Paul VI and Ignacio Calabuig, both of whom made singular contributions to implementing Vatican II’s directives for the reform and strengthening of Marian devotion in the liturgy, or, as expressed at Vatican II, who collaborated “that devotion to the Virgin Mary, especially in the liturgy, be generously fostered” (LG 67). Here a brief introduction presents Paul VI and Ignacio Calabuig and their views on Marian devotion and liturgy; a description of the causes for the postconciliar Marian crisis follows. Their collaborative response is found in Paul VI’s ...


Marian Coredemption As An Impetus To Marian Devotion, Arthur Burton Calkins May 2014

Marian Coredemption As An Impetus To Marian Devotion, Arthur Burton Calkins

Marian Studies

While the conciliar teaching had benefited from developments that had taken place in biblical, patristic, liturgical and ecclesiological studies since the First Vatican Council, it had still to convey the Church’s magisterial teaching on Our Lady, which had been handed on and enriched under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. On the one hand, the papal magisterium from the time of Blessed Pius IX onwards had continued developing the teaching about Mary’s active collaboration in the work of the redemption and Pius XI had publicly used the term “Coredemptrix” to describe this role. On the other hand, there ...


Marian 'Spiritual Attitude' And Marian Piety, Patricia A. Sullivan May 2014

Marian 'Spiritual Attitude' And Marian Piety, Patricia A. Sullivan

Marian Studies

As Marialis Cultus would seem to assert, ideally Marian spirituality and Marian devotion are united, yet they are distinct. Pope Paul VI wrote of a Marian “spiritual attitude” that Mary is “a most excellent exemplar of the Church in the order of faith, charity and perfect union with Christ, that is, of that interior disposition with which the Church, the beloved spouse, closely associated with her Lord, invokes Christ and through Him worships the eternal Father.” Humble handmaid of the Lord (Lk. 1:38), she is “a teacher of the spiritual life for individual Christians.” Of “exercises of piety,” constituting ...
