THE FACE OF MARY
Mary of Nazareth, welcoming God with simple,
daily actions and living in his Presence.
Mary of the Annunciation, saying a total and
unconditional "yes" to God,
to his plan of Love for the world.
Mary of the Visitation, going in haste to the one
who needs her presence.
Mary of Bethlehem, welcoming and protecting
Life; opening up to the mystery of the Child given
to her; keeping and meditating in her heart the
Word whispered by these events.
Mary at the foot of the Cross, in solidarity with
suffering; Mary who gives life in the pains of
Mary of Pentecost, assiduous in prayer,
one in heart with the whole Church
coming to birth, to ask for the effusion
of the Spirit over the world.
