Fr. Creighton-Jobe singles out the Mother of Jesus as a disciple of Christ who led a contemplative life, pondering her Son’s actions for their redemptive meaning for all humanity. Mary gives praise to God as the author of salvation and the source of all grace. She exemplifies Christ’s way of service as the means of gaining grace for all.
