MARY IS EXALTED FOR THE SAKE OF JESUS

11 Aug

“Mary is exalted for the sake of Jesus. It was fitting that she, as being a creature, though the first of creatures, should have an office of ministration. She, as others, came into the world to do a work, she had a mission to fulfil; her grace and her glory are not for her own sake, but for her Maker’s; and to her is committed the custody of the Incarnation… her glories and the devotion paid her proclaim and define the right faith concerning him as God and man.”

– Bl. John Henry Newman; Mary is the Mother of God. Christ is God, who has become man. Mix., 348-49
