Mother of the Redeemer
Published on the feast of the Annunciation on March 25, 1987 this encyclical focuses on Mary as a model of faith and her maternal mediation in the life of the Church. Pope John Paul II urges you to consider Mary’s unwavering faith, meditate on her unique role in God’s salvific plan, and emulate her in your daily life.
This expanded Anniversary Edition offers the complete text of the encyclical, along with a rich, accessible commentary written by Marian expert M. Jean Frisk. She illuminates the following central points:
-Mary’s presence in the mystery of Christ through grace
-Mary’s sharing in that mystery through faith
-Mary’s extension of that faith into the heart of the community of the Church
With M. Jean Frisk’s warm and inviting style, you are engaged through reflection questions, ideas to ponder, prayers, and actions to perform. Suited for individual or group use, this book provides you with an opportunity to renew your understanding of Mary-whether you are revisiting or introducing yourself to this landmark encyclical. In this experience, you not only encounter Mary, but you are drawn closer to her son: our Redeemer.
