Mary the Transparency of God


The pages of this beautiful reflection on Mary offer the reader a new vision of the mother of Jesus, and a new understanding of her role as a model for the Church and for individual Christians.


What is it that Christians of many different Churches find so attractive about the young Jewish girl who gave birth to Jesus? This book does more than hint at an answer. Chiara Lubich’s gospel-based intuitions are a source of new insights for Christians of all traditions.

Not only do we see the beauty of a human being who gave birth to God made flesh, not only do we taste the essential poetry of this unique event in history and enter more fully into all it implies, but we are made able to translate this vision into our daily lives. Mary becomes less a person we admire, an object of veneration, and more a source of inspiration, an example on which we can model our lives.

‘It seems to me that the present times call for a reintroduction of Mary. To do this, we hope here to promote a new vision of Mary, one that is largely unknown, based on what God chose to show us about her.’ Chiara Lubich
