A more human biblic Mary

19 Dec

A 15-year-old girl realizes that she will be a mother in a difficult way to understand, despite being deeply religious, and having the courage to assume what was for her a Will of God, would certainly be shaken, as indeed it was, says the Bible reading Lk 1: 27-28:
“The angel, coming to her, said,” Rejoice, gracious, the Lord is with you! ”
Maria was troubled by these words, wondering what that greeting might mean.
She says she does not know (have related to) any man, so the angel explains Lk 1:35:
“The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So he who is to be born will be called the Holy One, the Son of God.”
Faced with the perplexity of the adolescent, the angel gives her a key to read Lk 1:36:
“And Elizabeth, her kinswoman, shall have a son in old age; that which was said to be barren is already in its sixth month of gestation. ”
“The angel answered,” The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you, so that he who is to be born will be called Holy, Son of God. ”
And it says here that it is used by religious in various contexts and should not be Lk 1, 37:
“For nothing is impossible with God.”
Curiously, it is almost always those who use the biblical text those who least believe that Mary was special in the eyes of God and men, but there are also those who do not see the frailty and the doubts of this young adolescent who runs the cousin’s house, just because of the angel’s reading key: “Elizabeth, her kinswoman, will have a son in old age,” and probably this instigated Mary to visit her (in the picture, the Visitation of Raphael, 1517).
The following reading reads, that days later, Mary was “hurriedly into the mountainous lands of Judea,” the village where Elizabeth lived, who was pregnant with John the Baptist, the forerunner of Jesus, and Zechariah her husband who had been mute to the knowledge of conception.
Now Mary had not yet sung her song, the so-called Magnificat, and it is very probable that her heart still had doubts and was still part of the initial shock. He says that as soon as Mary greeted the cousin, the child of Elizabeth (John the Baptist) jumped in her womb, and Elizabeth was “full of the Holy Spirit”, we spoke in the previous post about the role of this little understood God, the Holy Spirit.
Like the ontoanthropological relationship with Eve, there is an ontotheological relationship with Izabel, her cousin, and only then does she sing her song Lc 1, 46-48)
“And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior; Because he looked upon the humility of his maidservant; For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed, “which is a proto-gospel of Mary, from which one can draw also a relationship with the Hail Mary of the Catholics, which has biblical reference Lc 1,42.
