Devotion to Mary guarantees fidelity to Christ, says Argentinean archbishop

.- Archbishop Jose Maria Arancedo of Santa Fe de la Vera Cruz encouraged Argentineans on Sunday to honor the Blessed Mother as a means of fidelity to the Word of Christ.

“Authentic devotion to the Virgin is a sign and guarantee of fidelity to Jesus Christ. We don’t need to wait for new apparitions, what she is telling us is to listen and to live the Gospels that her Son has given us,” the archbishop said on the feast of the Assumption of Mary.

During his homily, Archbishop Arancedo explained how to discern private revelations attributed to Mary or Jesus. “The encounter with Him is the beginning of conversion and new life. This is the best gift we can give her and which gives strength to our Marian devotion.”

He encouraged Argentineans to follow the example of Mary, who continues to fulfill the mission given to her by the Lord. “She accompanies us, she is our Mother; but we should also learn to heed the words she spoke to the disciples and that she speaks to us still today: ‘Do whatever He tells you’,” the archbishop concluded.
