    I’ve been there – St Mary Major. May its late archpriest rest in whatever it is he rests in.

    From the pontificate of Benedict XV; 1914 to 1922.
    Hail Queen of Peace,
    Very moving.

    In many ways he was a typical careerist with a Harvard degree: He would do whatever would endear him to superiors and ignore everything else. When Paul VI was pope, he was enthusiastic for ecumenism. Under JPII he became oriented toward moral doctrine.

    First, I love this statue and I’ve prayed there many times. Mary’s concern, Her sadness for the terrible loss of life and Her Child gently offering an olive branch, can move the hardest heart. Mary’s expression seems to almost know (in my mind) that the Child, playful with us, will also pay the highest price for us.
