to Virgin Mary

Posted in Giussani, Milan, Virgin Mary by martalorenza on September 10, 2010

God can certainly create a Firmament richer in stars, a more sublime Olympus, an even huger Ocean, a more verdant Earth, but He can’t create a more excellent Mother than Virgin Mary.

In Her all the value possible in pure Creatures has been given, keeping them pure Creatures.

Paolo Segneri, Devoted to Mary

The supreme drama is that Being should ask to be acknowledged by man. The fundamental principle of Christianity is freedom, which is the only translation of man’s infiniteness, and this infiniteness is discovered in the finiteness that man experiences. Man’s freedom is man’s salvation. Salvation, therefore, is the Mystery of God communicating himself to man. Our Lady totally respected God’s freedom. She saved God’s freedom. She obeyed God because she respected His freedom. She did not oppose it with her own method. Here is God’s first revelation.

Following the thought of some theologians, such as Segneri, Newman says that God could have created a world better than the one we have, but He could have not created a Mother greater than Mary.
