Description

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).
Mary is the woman most mentioned in the Gospels. From the very beginnings of the Christian story she has inspired poets, song writers and theologians, not to mention the sublime icons in the Orthodox tradition.
The readers of this book will come from a wide variety of backgrounds, each with their own sensibility regarding Mary. It will be good to approach these texts in a meditative spirit, so that in our hearts we might hear again the words Jesus spoke from the cross to John: ‘Here is your mother’.
