In the Catholic and Orthodox traditions, Mary is a key to our grasp of the Christian mystery. She is the Mother of God, as an early Council of the Church (Ephesus 431) stressed. As such she is a key to understanding the Christian Faith. In fact, she shows the beauty of that faith in its completeness, proportion and radiance. Mary is ‘the Mother of beautiful Love.’ Anyone who wants to better understand the Mother of Jesus, who is interested in Mary’s place in literature and art, or who is looking for a new perspective on Mary’s role in ecumenical dialogue should have this book.

Father Norris beautifully depicts Mary’s womb as the place where, united in her Son, the divine nature and the human nature rhyme.
