The Aparecida bishops’ examination of seminary formation concludes with a note advocationg a deeper connection with the Blessed Mother:
320. Throughout formation, an effort shall be made to develop a tender and filial love for Mary, so that each candidate comes to have spontaneous familiarity with her and “takes her into his home” like the beloved disciple. She will provide priests strength and hope in difficult moments, and will encourage them to be untiringly missionary disciples for the people of God.
