This morning the news is once again filled with humankind’s inhumanity to each other. As I hold my rosary beads in my hands I think of so many mothers who hold in their hands the blood of their children who have been killed through the violence that our world continues to embrace. As I vision such horror, I also vision Mary’s hands with her palms up and the blood of her son on them because violence took his life as well.

Treasure Chest, a comic book, ran “The Story of the Society of Mary in America” in 1950. The Catholic University of America has scanned this publication as part of its collection.
While the material in the margins can be a bit of a challenge to read, this colorful story of our color-filled history is worthy of one’s time, especially for a trip down memory lane.

[Editor’s Note: The following correspondence occurred between Father Paul Landolfi, SM, who asked the questions, and Father Antonio Gascón, SM, postulator general for the Society of Mary, who answered the questions related to intercessory prayer and causes for sainthood.
