Vatican City, Oct 26, 2020 / 03:22 am
Pope Francis said Saturday that the times we live in are the "times of Mary."
The pope made the remark at an Oct. 24 event marking the 70th anniversary of the foundation of the Pontifical Theological Faculty "Marianum" in Rome.
Speaking to an estimated 200 students and professors from the theological faculty in the Paul VI Audience Hall, the pope said that we are living in the time of the Second Vatican Council.
"No other Council in history has given Mariology as much space as that dedicated to it by Chapter VIII of 'Lumen gentium,' which concludes and in a certain sense summarizes the entire Dogmatic Constitution on the Church." he said.
