Video – Variety #178: Intro to Mary for Our Lady of Walsingham Ordinariate Members Part 1
Marian Catechism to Catholics of the Our Lady of Walsingham Ordinariate
Fr. Agnellus M. Murphy, F.I.
November 17th, 2011
-Fr. Agnellus lays the foundation for his three talks by explaining that we need to learn about Our Lady because we cannot love someone we do not know. In order to know Our Lady we need to be guided by grace through prayer. He further sustains that in these times to remain faithful to Christ, according to the Gospel, one needs to live out true devotion to Our Lady.
1st Conference: Why Mary? Why a Marian Age?
-“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches” (Rev 2:7). The message the Spirit is giving to the churches in this age is one on Our Lady. Many approved Marian apparitions attest to this.. The Magisterium of the Church since Bl. Pius IX to the present day also confirms this. The testimony of the lives of the saints in relation to their spiritual growth due to the hands of Our Lady is prevalent. Mary builds the kingdom of Christ in the “surest, swiftest, and easiest way.” Fr. Agnellus then goes on to delve into the Bible in order to show where this idea comes from.
