“The development, desire by us, of devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary is an indication of the
Church’s genuine piety. This devotion fits – as we have indicated above – into the only worship
that is rightly called ‘Christian,’ because it takes its origin and effectiveness from Christ, finds
its complete expression in Christ, and leads through Christ in the Spirit to the Father.”
(Pope Paul VI, For the Right Ordering and Development of Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, p.4)
