Am preaching on Mary today at a 'matronal' festival. These "m"s emerge from my preparation as being associated with Mary:
Mediator, Model, Moral Standard, Mother of Jesus, Magnifier of God.
Not all these words, I will suggest, should apply to the reality of Mary's contribution to the gospel and to salvation.
There is another "m" which is then important to consider: Mary's God is the God of Mercy.
