"Many blessings have been poured upon our beloved Seminary, like those that came from the six stone jars of new wine that flowed from the Wedding Feast at Cana. Our prayer is that these journal articles will invite the reader to contemplate the many ways the Blessed Mother intercedes for all of the faithful. The invitation to attend her son’s glorious and heavenly banquet is one that is extended to all. The table has been set and the new wine of salvation has been poured. All of this is possible and comes about Through Her Intercession." -- Stephen B. Kass, M.A., Introduction, Through Her Intercession
The Institute for Christian Spirituality, part of Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology, proudly announces the release of its new journal, Through Her Intercession. Completed three years after the School's first journal, Family Reflections, Through Her Intercession includes 11 different articles all with a special focus on the Blessed Mother.
According to Kass, editor-in-chief, the journal articles stemmed from the FEAST (Formational Evenings At the School of Theology) lectures that were given during the Seminary's sesquicentennial year. "These lectures all had a Marian theme specifically because Immaculate Conception Seminary has been under the protection of the Blessed Mother for over 150 years," says Kass. Those who delivered FEAST lectures were invited to write papers/articles based on those lectures for the journal.
The title Through Her Intercession, Kass says, was chosen specifically because of the importance and continual presence of Mary at the Seminary. Her image can be seen throughout the Seminary, and because of this, all of the photos featured in the journal were taken from Marian art forms in and around the Seminary building and the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception.
