Why Mary: Her Role in God’s Plan (Evangelization Guide)


Catholic Answers 2005

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


While all Christians—and even people of other faiths—agree that Mary is the mother of Jesus Christ, her role beyond this is not as clear. In Why Mary?, you will come to understand why it is our Christian duty to venerate Mary as both the first Christian and the Mother of our Savior. From Mary’s perpetual virginity to her bodily Assumption into heaven, this guide will provide you with explanations—drawn from Scripture and Church Tradition—of the four Marian Dogmas, as well as Mary’s role as spiritual Mother of the world.
