St. John Henry Newman—The Reverence Due to the Virgin Mary
This is a listener-supported podcast! Thanks for your help!
“For, truly, she is raised above the condition of sinful beings, though by nature a sinner; she is brought near to God, yet is but a creature, and seems to lack her fitting place in our limited understandings, neither too high nor too low. We cannot combine, in our thought of her, all we should ascribe with all we should withhold.”
The Reverence Due to the Blessed Virgin Mary is a sermon first given by Newman for the Feast of the Annunciation, before his conversion to Catholicism. In it he considers in what respects the Virgin Mary is “Blessed”.
Happy Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord!
