Marian spirituality

Someone asked in the comments box why I was putting thoughts about Mary from Bl. James Alberione, and not other sources.

Actually, it's not that I want to exclude any others, since there are so many wonderful writers who have said such great things about Mary, like St. Alphonsus and others.

The reason I'm focusing on Bl. James is because he is the Founder of our congregation, and I'd like to do my small part to make his Marian thought better known. His thought was very profound in that he saw Mary as an apostle. He put her very much in the forefront of his entire apostolic work.

This is an aspect of Mary that's less well known but very important.
