Mary the Mother of Christ: Luke 1:26-38
- Mary’s miracle
- Mary’s grace
- Mary’s Son
We have begun our look at the Incarnation by looking at Mary’s worship in response to these wonderful events. Mary herself though can be a help or a hindrance to our contemplation of Christ. There are churches that are committed to the Lady, or the Mother. She is viewed as a Co-redemptrix; she is prayed to and worshipped, and seen as more approachable than God in prayer. For this reason many Protestants avoid her, except to mention that she is not to be prayed to. However, any true investigation of Mary yields a tremendous amount of food for thought and draws us towards the wonder of Christ. So we continue with our look into Mary looking at Luke 1:26-38, at what is traditionally called the Annunciation.
