Women of the Word, Part 3 - Virgin Mary
We conclude our miniseries on the Women of the Word by taking a look at what the Scriptures say about the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of our Lord. We will limit ourselves to the biblical witness about Our Lady, as Anglicans have never required belief in the extensive doctrines which grew up around her in the Middle Ages. We discover that quite apart from these doctrines, the Scriptures present her as a woman of deep and persevering faith. Like all humans, she is a sinner in need of God's saving grace, and she didn't always understand her son's mission and what that meant for her. But she always stayed faithful to her son no matter what, and for that we should honor her the more.
