Looking for Jesus

BlackMadonaEven as a Catholic, I don’t often understand devotion to Mary. But this simple description from Pope Francis, I do understand:

“When the Church looks for Jesus, she always knocks at his Mother’s door and asks: ‘Show us Jesus.’ It is from Mary that the Church learns true discipleship. That is why the Church always goes out on mission in the footsteps of Mary.”–Pope Francis at Aparacida in Brazil
