The Bible notes Mary's words on only four occasions. Humanly speaking, this is not much to go on for those interested in learning about who she was and why she matters today. In the Spirit, however, the words are alive and active, revealing the mystery of salvation embodied in a young woman given over to God.
Father Caster plumbs the spiritual meaning of these few words while also revealing how they provide the biblical roots for four essential titles the church has bestowed on Mary: Mother of God, Our Lady of Victory, Mother of the Church and Mother of the Eucharist. With great sensitivity, the author draws the reader not only into a more intimate relationship with Mary but also into a deeper appreciation of her role in human history.
