When I first watched Mary of Nazareth, I was reminded of the words Father George P. Schommer, O.P. shared during a retreat some years ago:
“Praying the rosary with Mary is a memorial – making present in our own time an event in salvation history. By meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary, Mary brings that event to us, so we can experience its power and grace. Mary draws us to her Son. Use your imagination. Meditate on the mysteries. It will help you grow in your relationship with Jesus. We are with Him and with Mary in these events.”
Viewing Mary of Nazareth – the equivalent of praying the rosary with one’s eyes – breathed new life into the good Friar’s words and provided much to ponder.
