The life of the Mother Mary is the open book. Mother Mary was predestined from eternity and uniquely prepared to be the dwelling place of God. Mother Mary has God’s gift of Grace. The Word of God in faith becomes herself a Mother. The most Blessed Virgin Mary was from first moment of her conception by a singular Grace and privilege of almighty God and by virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ. Mary is the person and place where God has chosen to enter most deeply into the human story. She is the one who hears the Word of God, the one who responds in faith, he said.
