Mary, Our Lady of Faith: Mother of the Church [1]


Mary, the Mother of Jesus, has two histories within Christian tradition. We have the Mary of popular devotions and the Mary of Scripture.
The Mary of Devotions is the Mary we know from her many titles: Our Lady of Lourdes, Our Lady of Knock, Our Lady of Fatima, Mother of perpetual help …; The Mary whose different titles we recite in litanies, the Mary we know through novenas and prayers. The Mary we sing to with different hymns; She is the Mother who understands human suffering, the Mother we can always turn to, and for many the maternal face of God … and many others.
