It flows from that love which, in the Holy Spirit, unites the consubstantial Son to the Father.

If it is true that “all generations will call her blessed” cf. To believe means “to abandon oneself” to the truth of the word of the living God, knowing and humbly recognizing “how unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways” Rom. Dogmatic Constitution on the Church Lumen Gentium, 59; cf. She is a virgin who “keeps whole and pure the fidelity she has pledged to her Spouse” and “becomes herself a mother,” for “she brings forth to a new and immortal life children who are conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of God.

At the center of this mystery, in the midst of this wonderment of faith, stands Mary. Through this faith Mary is perfectly united with Christ in his self- emptying.

This “fullness” indicates the moment fixed from all eternity when the Father sent his Son “that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” Jn. Jesus highlights a new relationship between Mother and Son, the whole truth and reality of which he solemnly confirms. Moreover it is of importance to encourage those men and women who dedicate themselves to the contemplative life. Atque optime quidem perfecere, iis praeterea abrogatis legis capitibus moribusque usu inductis, quae, incolumi prorsus vitae instituto, obsoleverant aut temporibus iam non congruere visa sunt, additisque, contra, nonnullis Capitulorum Generalium praescriptis.

Thus, throughout her life, the Church maintains with the Mother of God a link which embraces, in the saving mystery, the past, the present and the future, and venerates her as the spiritual mother of humanity and the advocate of grace. The Church “becomes herself a mother by accepting God’s word with fidelity. The Mother of Christ, who stands at the very center of this mystery-a mystery which embraces each individual and all humanity-is given as mother to every single individual and all mankind.

Images of the Virgin have a place of honor in churches and houses. It is precisely the special bond between humanity and this Mother which has led me to proclaim a Marian Year in the Church, in this period before the end of the Second Millennium since Christ’s birth, a similar initiative was taken in the past.

With regard to Mary as Queen, cf. It is significant that, as he speaks to his mother from the Cross, he calls her “woman” and says to her: But at the same time, at the very beginning of his life, the Son of Mary, and his Mother with him, will experience in themselves the truth of those other words of Simeon: For we read that he took up in his arms the child to whom-in accordance with the angel’s command-the name Jesus was given cf.

She sees Mary deeply rooted in humanity’s history, in man’s eternal vocation according to the providential plan which God has made for him from eternity She sees Mary maternally present and sharing in the many complicated problems which today beset the lives of individuals, families and nations; she sees her helping the Christian people in the constant struggle between good and evil, to ensure that it “does not fall,” or, if it has fallen, that it “rises again.

If though, from the moment of the Annunciation, the Son-whom only the Father knows completely, as the one who begets him in the eternal “today” cf. Etenim, quamvis monachi a procuratione animarum ceterisque externis ministeriis refugerent, sensim gradatimque contigit, ut cum divinarum rerum commentatione ac contemplatione actionem vitae coniungerent.

It includes everyone, but it reserves a special place for the “woman” who is the Mother of him to whom the Father has entrusted the work of salvation.

According to scholars this city would be the modern Ain Karim, marer in the mountains, not far from Jerusalem.
