I pray the rosary everyday. Other than that, I rarely ever speak to the Blessed Mother. I don’t think I’ve ever had enough devotion to Mary. I rarely ever turn to any of the Saints. I once had a strong devotion to St. Monica, the mother of St Augustine, but that ended. I read about the Saints all the time and they all seemed to have a strong deovotion to the Blessed Mother that I’ve never had. I’m in a period in which my faith is in serious danger and I sort of need her more than ever. I have this pilgrimage statue of the the Blessed Mother that’s going to be at my house for a week but I can’t bring myself to pray before it because I’ve never been one who venerates religious statues.
How do I become closer to the Mother if Christ? Is it an offense for me to constantly ignore her?
