Mary Mother of God

(Dec 29th 2010)

MAry symbolizes the people of God ,humanity in need of God. The mediievals had  a great  sense of this. They used to picture Mary  in their art as a woman with a giant cape. Beneath the cape were all the people of God . She summed up the meaning of their Christianity  in her person, in her "yes". She is the symbol of God's final victory in humanity.  She is one of us and she is what we will be.

This is what Marian celebrations are  all about .
