Comment from UTT:
The statement found in the following article from the following web site is not biblically based. It is an opinion that may be endorsed by dogma and tradition but not supported by the Bible.
But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.
1 Timothy 3:15 KJV
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
1 Timothy 2:5 KJV
“To Jesus, through Mary:
“There are three steps to climb to go to God: the first, which is the nearest to us, and the most suited to our capacity, is Mary; the second is Jesus Christ; and the third is God the Father. To go to Jesus, we must go to Mary; she is our mediatrix of intercession.” — St. Louis de Montefort
This reflection is the theme and focus of the 2016 National Marian Conference, May 20 and 21, at the Joyce Athletic and Convocation Center at the University of Notre Dame. The newly named conference is a revival of the National Medjugorje Conference, which has been held for the past 25 years. A local gem, this conference is a beautiful time of prayer and reflection during May, the month of Mary, Our Mother. The National Marian Conference and de Montefort both promote devotion to Mary as a way to growing closer to Jesus.
Sponsored by the non-profit Queen of Peace Ministries, the Marian Conference hosts an excellent line-up of a variety of well-known Catholic speakers. But what sets the conference apart is its prayerful design and schedule. Almost like a spiritual individual retreat combined with inspiring and academic talks and warm fellowship and community, the National Marian Conference offers a refreshingly beautiful way to learn or renew one’s relationship with Mary, Mother of God. The two day conference offers a medley of Catholic tradition including abundant opportunity for the sacrament of reconciliation, a separate chapel of adoration open throughout the entirety of the conference, traditional and contemporary praise and worship, recitation of the rosary, and, of course, Mass. The setting is comfortable for families as well as for individuals of all ages.
“At this year’s conference, we will emphasize the importance of the rosary and consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. America is in a spiritual crisis and these are the remedies that Our Lady gave us at Fatima and now, with more urgency, at Medjugorje,” explained Deacon Brian Miller of Queen of Peace Ministries.
Emphasis on the importance and power of the rosary in the history of the United States and throughout the world is a highlight in the presentation of Holy Cross Father Willy Raymond, president of Holy Cross Family Ministries. Miller continued, “We hope to revive the rosary apostolate of Father Patrick Peyton and his famous motto, ‘The family that prays together stays together.’” Father Raymond will also speak about Father Peyton’s cause for canonization. The rosary will be prayed at the Grotto at the heart of Notre Dame’s beautiful campus. The grotto is a replica of the original grotto at Lourdes, France.
