Why she matters

Mother+of+Japan

“It is difficult, if not impossible, to imagine an individual life or a specific culture for which [Mary] is not an appropriate — and treasured — symbol.  Her devotees are a remarkably kaleidoscopic group, from Dante and Mozart to Juan Diego of Guadalupe, from empresses and queens to illiterate girls to whom she  appeared at Fatima and Lourdes.  She fits everywhere and offers something to everyone.”

— Jaroslav Pelikan, Mary Through the Centures: Her Place in the History of Culture
