What does Mary mean to you?

From the earliest days of the Church, Mary has loomed large in traditions, doctrines, and devotions. Aside from Jesus Christ, more has been written about Mary than any other Christian figure. And yet much confusion about her role persists.

Father Dan Crosby, O.F.M. Cap., delivers lively lectures that endow listeners with an inspiring and informative, fresh and faithful perspective on Mary. Nearly eight years in the making, Mary: Mirror of God Who Sees, Hears, Cares, and Comes is neither “pious chatter” nor “frilly theology.” It is born, rather, of his serious questions about Mary’s rightful place in Christian faith, his constant grappling with the “So what?” of effective preaching, and his insights into the importance that God desires Mary to have in our lives.

As a person of faith, you’ve heard a number of epithets bestowed upon Saint Mary: Mother of Jesus, Blessed Virgin, Queen of Heaven. But the title of this series illuminates the view of Mary that Fr. Crosby asks you to adopt: Mary, Mirror of God.

For Fr. Crosby, Mary is the perfect reflector of God. When you look at her, you behold her beauty and goodness, but even more, you behold the beauty and goodness of God that shines so powerfully through her.
