News From Rome: Mary is... Human

ROME, JUNE 3, 2011 ( The Second Vatican Council's "anthropological turn" brought a spotlight to the "woman of Nazareth," enabling the faithful to discover Our Lady in her full humanity, says the secretary of the Pontifical Marian International Academy.

"Past devotion clothed the Virgin in very precious mantles, crowns and gifts, forgetting little by little her humanity," he suggested. "The anthropological turn of Vatican II has made us discover 'the woman of Nazareth' in her full humanity. In her we find, next to Jesus, a totally fulfilled woman, but only after having accepted the will of God, which revealed itself to her in her constant journey of faith which points her out as a true disciple of Christ.
