Learn how devotion to the Blessed Mother is a gift to appreciate how Mary, the Mother of God comes alive especially in Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese and Filipino cultural art.
A visit to the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. can increase our devotion to Mary through religious art and imagery. Oftentimes, we also see this when we take time to look at the stained glass windows in local churches. One of the attributes of Marian devotion is that peoples of the world grow up with the belief that the Blessed Mother is a cultural representation of themselves. You are invited to read and meditate on how the Blessed Mother reminds us of the importance to build cultural bridges of faith and social understanding with each other.
