Mariological Society of America

We have just closed the 62nd annual meeting of the Mariological Society of America, held at the Franciscan Renewal Center just outside Scottsdale, Arizona. We had some really terrific talks, and were blessed by a visit from the Bishop of Phoenix, the Most Reverend Thomas Olmsted, who celebrated Mass for us last night and stayed for dinner.
