Marian Devotions—Free Poster

Marian Devotions

Our Lady. Blessed Virgin. Queen of Heaven. Madonna. Maria. Mary. The mother of Jesus and the Church is known by many names, which reflect just how revered she is all over the world.

The importance of Mary as Mother of God lies not only in that Mary was the woman who gave birth to Jesus, but in that she was the one who had faith in God and freely said yes to participate in God’s wonderful plan of Salvation. In Mary was conceived the Savior of the world—God’s Word became a living person in her and through her. Mary spent her whole life saying yes to God, never losing faith even when her Son suffered and died. As Mother of God, Mary is also our mother, the Mother of the Church, because she leads believers to Jesus just as she did during her life on earth.

  1. My Diocese is Liverpool, home of the Beetles! I am a retired full time Teacher, but still prepare the children (and adults) who attend non-Catholic schools for the Sacraments. I greatly appreciate the programmes you publish here. Thank You

  2. Hi Joe!

    Happy New Year! greetings all the way from Shanghai, China. You and this website is truly a GIFT to us here. An inspiration always! Our blessed Mother Mary is a perfect example of one who relied on God’s blessing. So as 2015 unfolds, I choose to be like Mary, and surrendering to the Lord. “Heavenly Father, we dedicate this year to you. We trust in all the blessings You have in store for us. Amen!” In confidence or instability, we can still know our Father’s presence, His wisdom, His guidance, His protection. No matter what comes our way, undoubtedly, I will meet good fortune as well as challenging obstacles, BUT one thing will be constant: God’s blessing.

    • Thanks for your beautiful thoughts, Charry! So glad that we can connect in this ever-shrinking world! New Year’s Blessings!

  3. Absolutely love this information. For some reason I can not print 11 X 17 – even changing the settings on the printer.
    Any suggestions?? Would really love a 11 X 17 poster of this for the bulletin board.

    • Hi Jill,

      Because every browser and printer setup is different, you may have to adjust some of these tips to get the printout to work for you. For instance, I open the PDF and click to print. An options page comes up on which I have to change settings for printing at actual size and then click to choose paper source by PDF page size. That worked for me. Please check your printer too for any messages it might give that would indicate something needs to be reset.
