From the Christian mystic, Adrienne von Speyr (1902-1967), this book Mary in the Redemption will help us understand in accessible language the Catholic belief in Mary’s role in the redemption won by Jesus Christ. We will use this book to explore the great Christian spiritual and mystical traditions surrounding Mary that sees Mary at the heart of God’s plan of salvation for all humanity.
”’Ecce ancilla’ (Behold the Handmaid). With these words Mary calls everyone into service. She is the chosen one, the one visited by the angel. Yet she would like to understand her service in such a way that, through her, it includes all the faithful.” (p. 11)
