Treasures of the Church

Like Mary: Keep the Treasures in your heart

"Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart" (Lk 2,19)
" But the Church also preserves the faith received from Christ. Following the example of Mary, who kept
and pondered in her heart everything relating to her divine Son"
(Enc. Redemptoris Mater, n. 43- JPII- 1987)

The greatest treasures of the Church:
The Eucharist and priesthood
The Blessed Mother
The Holy Father and the Magisterium
The Saints: their lives and teachings
