DPPL 184: Liturgy and Marian Piety

STA altar at night smallThis brief paragraph reminds us that however close we hold the Blessed Mother in our hearts an piety, liturgy is still number one:

184. The relationship between the Liturgy and popular Marian piety should be regulated by the principles and norms already mentioned in this document(Cf. DPPL 47-59, 70-75). In relation to Marian devotion, the Liturgy must be the “exemplary form” (Cf. Paul VI, Marialis cultus, 1; CDWDS, Circular Letter Guidelines an proposals for the celebration of the Marian Year 7; Collectio missarum de beata Maria Virgine, Praenotanda, 9-18), source of inspiration, constant reference point and ultimate goal of Marian devotion.

The Directory on Popular Piety and the Liturgy is online at the Vatican site.
