Marian Symposium 2010

A great conference at last weekends Marian Symposium hosted by the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe.  Sorry, but I didn't realize the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate were broadcasting the whole thing live on

So what's the big deal?  Some conference on Mary.  Yeah, I pray to her, I get it.

Mary is more than just another saint.  Her pivotal and necessary role in salvation history is worth more attention.  To understand the Faithful Daughter of the Father, the Spouse of the Holy Spirit, the Mother of God, is to come to understand God more fully, and especially Jesus Christ our Crucified King.  Like St John at the foot of the Cross we must take her into our homes, as the Diocese of La Crosse and the state of Wisconsin have done with this Shrine.

If you want to "get" what it is all about I recommend Dr. Mark Miravalle's talk from this year's conference.  All the talks are recorded and DVDs of each talk can be purchased.  I'm in the process of finding out if we can get the audio in MP3 format posted online.  The only way right now to get the conference DVD would be to call the Shrine and order it over the phone.  You might have to mail a check in first.  They do have the equipment at the Shrine to produce the DVDs.

Here's some photos.
