Father Maximilian continues to look at the characters of the Passion and how they reflect different aspects of the spiritual life. Now he shifts his focus to Our Blessed Mother, the woman who suffered and yet still rejoiced in God her Savior. Mary is THE model of the Church; she is the “Virgin made Church” as St. Francis called her. Father Stefano Manelli, founder of the Franciscans of the Immaculate, outlines 3 points on our Marian journey towards perfect union with Christ, and Father Maximilian discusses these 3 points in this episode.
