“Again and again in recent Marian apparitions the rosary has played a part; it has happened that Mary has fingered the beads along with those praying the rosary. Why should this be? So that we should prefer to pray to her and not to Christ or to the Father? On the contrary, so that it is from her point of view, from her memory, that we should look at the mysteries of Jesus’s life, and thereby at those of the Trinitarian embodiment of salvation. Our eyes are bleary and dull: if you will forgive the metaphor, we must put on Mary’s spectacles in order to see exactly."
Hans Urs Van Balthasar.
