- In Chiara Lubich’s understanding, Mary is ‘the flower of humanity’ who through her ‘Yes’ at the Annunciation, gave Jesus physically to the world; and all of us are called to become little Marys’ generating the presence of Jesus spiritually by living out Jesus’ promise: ‘Where two or three are united in my name, I am there among them’ (Mt. 18: 20).
- Pope John Paul II referred to Mary as “Mother to all, and Mother forever.” The faithful know they can count on the heavenly Mother’s concern: Mary will never abandon them. By taking her into our own home as a supreme gift from the heart of the crucified Christ, we are assured a uniquely effective presence in the task of showing the world in every circumstance the fruitfulness of love and the authentic meaning of life.
