Mary, the Mother of God, is the most dynamic, engaging, and important person in the Church (other than Jesus, of course), and paying attention to her is...well...kind of necessary.
We're meant to listen to her, which means we need to know what she's said.
We're meant to go to her with our petitions, which means we need to know what she's said.
We're meant to imitate her, which means we need to know what she's said.
We're meant to honor her, which means we need to know...well, you get it...
Devotion to Mary, and honoring her, is a surefire way to get to know Jesus, and isn't that what we all want? To know the Lord, intimately? Well who better to help us know Him, than the woman who raised Him?
