Introduction:

(CCC 487-511, 963-975, USC Ch. 12)

"Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word." (Luke 1:38)

"What the Catholic faith believes about Mary is based on what it believes about Christ, and what it teaches about Mary illumines in turn its faith in Christ." (CCC 487)

In this article we will look at:

  • Mary in Scripture
  • Mary as "Woman of Faith" and "Model Disciple"
  • Mary, Mother of the Church
  • Four Marian Doctrines
  • Veneration of Mary

The Vatican Council II document on the Church, called Lumen Gentium (“Light to the Nations”), ends with a chapter on Mary. This is to highlight Mary’s role in our salvation and in our Church family. When we Christians understand more clearly Mary’s unique role in God’s place of salvation, we will also have a better grasp of the role that God wants her to play in our spiritual lives so that we can honor Mary as God intends us to. The only reason we honor Mary is because God honored her in a very unique way when he chose her to be the Mother of God Incarnate, Jesus Christ.
