Who is Mary?

Mary is a creature like all human beings, but she is also the One who said: "all generations will call me blessed" (Lk 1: 48). Of all God's creatures, she is the One that the Church Fathers and Doctors have called "God's masterpiece" or "the King's Secret." Her "yes" to God changed the course of history forever.

For God the Father, she is the One—chosen from the very beginning—in whom the Covenant with His creation was able to be fulfilled, according to the plan of Redemption by His Divine Word...

For the Word of God, she is the One from whom He received his humanity, the One who took care of him during his life on Earth, the One He called "Mother," the One who had the most power over her Son's heart and the One who was able to obtain whatever she desired...

For us, Mary is the Mother, the Refuge of tenderness, compassion and mercy, who brings us forth to eternal life. Mary is also our Model, because she is our sister in accordance with the human condition. She is the Morning Star, in whom Hope becomes a guiding force in our lives...
