Archbishop calls on Argentineans to deepen Marian devotion

.- Archbishop Hector Aguer of La Plata called on Catholics in Argentina this week to have greater devotion to the Virgin Mary as a means of deepening their relationship with Jesus and the Most Holy Trinity.

In his program “Keys to a Better World,” Archbishop Aguer expressed the need for Argentineans to allow Mary to have a more important role in their lives.  “Mary is the model of assimilation of the truth revealed by God, the truth that is expressed concretely in Christ himself,” the archbishop said.

The archbishop said it is important to “elaborate, meditate, and pray” that Mary lead one to Jesus, saying this “is not some kind of detour but rather it is finding and taking a better shortcut, a shortcut that directly and securely leads us to the Lord.”

In drawing close to Mary, he continued, believers will enter into an “intimacy with her” and discover that “her intentions are the intentions of God, the will of God,” and letting themselves be guided by her in their relationship with Jesus and their Christian conduct.
