How are we to best esteem Jesus’ mother Mary? Sadly, the topic of our Lord’s mother has been a battleground. Is there common ground we could find that would draw us to love the Son more deeply by seeing HIs mother more biblically? If the angel Gabriel called her “highly favored,” what should we call her? And what does church history have to teach us? 

Some might say we’re going where angels fear to tread! Not true! Gabriel’s visit leads us boldly to the woman all generations called blessed!
