He said, “Son, behold your Mother.” – My Mother. And what did the disciple do? he took Her into his home – not simply the stone edifice but that home that is the place of our heart – the very center of our personality. Take Her as your Mother so that you can understand what it means to be brother and sister to Jesus.

FiNews – Fr. Peter Wins Card. John J. Wright Mariological Award

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

Ave Maria!

We wish to give our hearty congratulations to our very own Fr. Peter Damian Fehlner as we announce that he has been accorded the prestigious Cardinal John J. Wright Award of the Mariological Society of America for his outstanding contributions to Mariology.

FrPeterFehlner

The Mariological Society of America (MSA) is a Catholic theological association dedicated to studying and making known the role of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the mystery of Christ and in the Church and in the history of salvation.  Through its annual meeting and in its publication, Marian Studies, the Society seeks to promote original research in Marian doctrine and devotion.

The Cardinal John J. Wright Mariological Award is conferred in memory of Cardinal Wright, long-time member of the MSA and its Episcopal chairman from 1951 until his death in 1979.  As defined by the Board of Directors in 1991, the award is given, upon recommendation of a designated three-member committee, to recognize and encourage significant publications on the Virgin Mary.  Its recipient need not be a member of the MSA.

Past recipients of the Mariological Award include Juniper B. Carol, O.F.M. (1951); Wenceslaus Sebastian, O.E.M. (1952); Lawrence W. Monheim, S.M. (1953); Stanley Maruzewski, M.S. (1954); Bernard Le Frois, S. V. D. (1955); Dominic J. Unger, O.F.M. Cap. (1956); Cyril Vollert, S.J. (1957); Walter J. Burghardt, S.J. (1958); Eamon R. Carroll, O.Carm. (1959); William G. Most (1960); George W. Shea (1961); Edward D. O’Connor, C.S.C. (1962); Kenneth E Dougherty, S.A. (1966); Ovidio Casado Fuente (1966); Charles W. Neumann, S.M. (1967); Cletus J. Wessels, O.P. (1968); John E Craghan, C.Ss.R. (1971); Theodore A. Koehler, S.M. (1973); Manuel Miguens, O.F.M. (1975); William H. Marshner (1979); Roger M. Charest, S.M.M. (1983); James T. O’Connor (1986); Alfred Boeddeker, O.F.M. (1989); Nicholas Ayo, c.s.c. (1995). Bertrand Buby, S.M. (1997); Luigi Gambero, S.M. (2005); Johann Roten, S.M. (2010).

This is great news indeed and a great honor to a well deserved mariologist and a very dear confrere. Congratulations Fr. Peter!!!
