Mary made nothingness visible (Joan Chittister, O.S.B.)
It is not insignificant that Mary, Queen of Peace,
is also Mary of Nazareth and not Mary of Jerusalem, or Mary of Caesarea.The most significant woman of all time came
from one of the area’s most insignificant of all place.Mary made nothingness visible.It takes a lot of human growing to find value
in the valueless – in small places and simple things and powerless people.But that is the basis for peace, both inside
of us and in the world around us.
