Fr. Klemens Stock, SJ, employs biblical scholarship and accessible language in order to illuminate the scriptural image of Mary. Looking at how she is represented in the various gospels and in other New Testament texts, Fr. Stock offers interesting reflections on Mary’s identity and role in the early Church and how this might inspire us today. Translated by Joseph Chalmers, O.Carm.
