Video – Fr Maximilian – The Cornerstone #31: Mary According to St. Francis
Fr. Maximilian continues his reflection on Mary in God's creative plan. In this entry, Father reaffirms Mary's exalted position through the eyes of St. Francis in his "Antiphon for the Office of the Passion" and in another of his prayers titled "Salutation to the Blessed Virgin". In these prayers, Francis highlights the fact the Mary has a unique relation to the Trinity that no other creature shares. Fr. then explains how St. Maximilian Kolbe borrowed from and deepened this insight of Francis in his own prayer of praise.
