Named after Mary, Marianists have a unique way of describing and embracing her relevance for Christians. Through the ages, the Church has honored Mary and encouraged devotion to her; however, Marianists see that Mary's role in our journey goes beyond the one-time event of bearing and mothering the Son of God. She is a model, not only of holiness and virtue, but of how to bear Christ into the world in all times. This pamphlet details the thinking of the Founders and includes comments from contemporary Marianists on Mary's meaning today. This issue is also available in Spanish.
