Acta, pars I, But it has a symbolic value: For in Mary’s faith, first at the Annunciation and then fully at the foot of the Cross, an interior space was reopened within humanity which the eternal Father can fill “with every spiritual blessing.

AAS 51 [1959] – ocr

Mary knows she has conceived and given birth to him “without having a husband,” by the redemptoriis of the Holy Spirit, by the power of the Most High who overshadowed her cf.

Mary, who redeemptoris the eternal will of the Most High stands, one may say, at the very center of those “inscrutable ways” and “unsearchable judgments” of God, conforms herself to them in enclcica dim light of faith, accepting fully and with a ready heart everything that is decreed in the divine plan.

Mary is the first to share in this new revelation of God and, within the same, in this new “self-giving” of God. Thus there is manifested in a singular way the efficacy of the one and universal mediation of Christ “between God and men” Mary’s cooperation shares, in its subordinate character, in the universality of mate mediation of the Redeemer, the one Mediator. But to the blessing uttered by that woman upon her who was his mother according to the flesh, Jesus replies in a significant way: We know from Luke that when, on the occasion of the census ordered by the Roman encflica, Mary went with Joseph to Bethlehem, having found “no place in the inn,” she gave birth to her Son in a stable and “laid him in a manger” cf.

Her presence in the midst of Israel-a presence so discreet as to pass almost unnoticed by the eyes of her contemporaries-shone very clearly before the Eternal One, who had associated this hidden “daughter of Sion” cf.

In the light of this fact it becomes easier to understand why in Christ’s testament on Golgotha his Mother’s new motherhood is expressed in the singular, in reference to one man: She is conscious that the promise made to the fathers, first of all “to Abraham and to his posterity for ever,” is being fulfilled in herself.

Christ truth in the mind of Mary, Christ flesh in the womb of Mary”: In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace” Eph. Thus teach the Fathers of the Church and especially St. How completely she “abandons herself to God” without reserve, offering the full assent of the intellect and the will” 39 to him whose “ways are inscrutable” cf.

Without any doubt, Mary is worthy of blessing by the very fact that she became the mother of Jesus according to the flesh “Blessed is the womb that bore you, and the breasts that you sucked”but also and especially because already at the Annunciation she accepted the word of God, because she believed it, because she was obedient to God, and because she “kept” the word and “pondered it in her heart” cf.

Now, at the Visitation, when Elizabeth’s greeting bears witness to that culminating moment, Mary’s faith acquires a new consciousness and a new expression. Therefore, we do approve and confirm by our Apostolic Authority the Statutes of the Carthusian Order corrected and revised as they appear above. Every day Mary is in constant contact with the ineffable mystery of God made man, a mystery that surpasses everything revealed in the Old Covenant.

This is the gospel in which Mary is present as the mother who conceives Jesus in her womb, gives him birth and nurses him: Here we speak not only of the doctrine of faith but also of the life of faith, and thus of authentic “Marian spirituality,” seen in the light of Tradition, and especially the spirituality to which the Council exhorts us.

The promised Messiah is to be “great,” and the heavenly messenger also announces that “he will be great”-great both by bearing the name of Son of the Most High and by the fact that he is to assume the inheritance of David.


The “Magnificat” of the pilgrim Church And therefore does not the blessing uttered by Jesus rredemptoris response to the woman in the crowd refer primarily to her? Each child is surrounded in the same way by that maternal love on which are based the child’s development and coming to maturity as a human being.

Among them how could I fail to mention the one in my own native encvlica, Jasna Gora?

Redemptoris Mater (seminary)

The seeds of this encyclical may be traced to the statement by Pope John Paul II that as a young seminarian he “read and reread many times and with great spiritual profit” a work of Saint Louis de Montfort and that: In which Constitution we see the many great praises lavished by our same predecessor on the Carthusians, and that expression of high praise has all the more weight in that it comes from a Pontiff illustrious for the great sanctity of his life.

Saint Bernard, In Navitate B. I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly John There the Sovereign Pontiff energetically declares what had been his purpose.

And it is a recognized fact that through nearly nine hundred years the Carthusians have so well retained the spirit of their founder, Father and lawgiver that unlike other religious institutes, their Order has never in so long a space of time needed any amendment, or, as they say, reform. Ephrem the Syrian, called “the lyre of the Holy Spirit,” tirelessly sang of Mary, leaving a still living mark on the whole tradition of the Syriac Church. In Mary’s case we have a special and exceptional mediation, based upon her “fullness of grace,” which was expressed in the complete willingness of the “handmaid of the Lord.

This election is more powerful than any experience of evil and sin, than all that “enmity” which marks the history of man.

L’intera delegazione accusava quindi che si era venuta a creare una situazione irriconciliabile con il Cammino Neocatecumenale. It flows from her divine motherhood and can be understood and lived in faith only on the basis of the full truth of this motherhood.
