Brant Pitre on Mary

Why is Mary so important to Catholics, and why have so many people been devoted to her over the centuries? Tim Gray welcomes Dr. Brant Pitre to discuss what the Old and New Testaments, the life of Christ, and the early Church fathers reveal about the life and identity of Mary. Dr. Gray and Dr. Pitre discuss Marian typology, relationship to Mary outside of the Catholic Church, and viewing Mary as our spiritual Mother.
