Publishers Description
The Bible notes Mary's words on only four occasions. Humanly speaking, this is not much to go on for those interested in learning about who she was and why she matters today. In the Spirit, however, the words are alive and active, revealing the mystery of salvation embodied in a young woman given over to God.
Father Caster plumbs the spiritual meaning of these few words while also revealing how they provide the biblical roots for four essential titles the church has bestowed on Mary: Mother of God, Our Lady of Victory, Mother of the Church and Mother of the Eucharist. With great sensitivity, the author draws the reader not only into a more intimate relationship with Mary but also into a deeper appreciation of her role in human history.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mary, in Her Own Words: The Mother of God in Scripture?

Mary as Model of Faith  Dec 27, 2006
In reading Fr. Caster's interpretation of Mary's life, I realized that I have been "thinking as a child" (1 Cor. 13:11) when it comes to the Blessed Mother. Through the pages of "Mary in Her Own Words" I saw clearly what makes sense: neither Mary nor Jesus came to the world with a script; they were not always able to discern God's will or their own mission instantaneously or with great certitude.

Using the words attributed to Mary in scripture and the circumstances that prompted them, Fr. Caster shows us, for example, that when Jesus, at 12, stayed behind to teach in the temple, neither he nor Mary was clear on whether this event marked the beginning of his redeeming mission. Mary was not rebuked by Jesus' response when his parents found him; she was trying to understand so that she could cooperate fully with the will of God.

And at the marriage feast of Cana, Mary knew it was enough to tell the stewards to do as Jesus said, though she had no idea what would happen. And Jesus hesitated not because he was annoyed or knew this was not the right time, but through concern for the suffering of those close to him, especially his mother, when his public ministry began. Like Mary, he had no specific information about God's plan. The message for us today is that even the divine/human Redeemer and his Mother, conceived without sin, relied on faith, and that we today can find our way through that same virtue.

These stories of Mary's words, along with chapters on the development of Church teaching, offer inspiration and support for individuals and groups. The short chapters lend well to use in retreats or faith-sharing gatherings, and the organization is flexible enough that they need not be used in sequence.
