Matthew's Sketch of Mary
Luke's Portrait of Mary, the Mother of Jesus
The Gospel of John and the Mother of Jesus
The Vision of the Apocalypse: A Woman Clothed with the Sun: Revelation 11:15-12:17

The Bible testifies to a living tradition which venerates the Mother of the Lord and hence offers the believer the basis for an authentic devotion to Mary unencumbered by exaggerations in the direction of either too much or none at all. Mary is a 'fact', a 'given' of Divine Revelation and a 'maternal presence' always operative in the life of the Church. [Mary of Galilee, backcover]
