Mary, Mother of all Humanity, Hic et Nunc!
By Hugh McNichol
Mary, Mother of all humanity... the time is now!
One point that indeed unites most of the Catholic world is the special role of Mary in the preparation for the life and ministry of Jesus Christ on earth. Often the moment of the Annunciation provides a catechetical moment in Church iconography and art and the mystery of the Incarnation is humanly realized. Jesus Christ present to the entire world, through the acceptance of a young Jewish girl. Understanding the pivotal role that Mary played in salvation history is the key to uniting all faithful believers into a global renewal of prayerful and political harmony.
The understanding of Mary as humanity's spiritual Mother is a critical revelation suggested to the Holy Father from the worlds Cardinals and Bishops. Not only does this petition suggest the deepening of interreligious dialogue, but indicates Mary is the common uniting factor in the desire for world peace and harmony. Catholic, Christian, Orthodox, Islamic and even Jewish believers are able to identify with the notion of "universal Motherhood," as the foundation towards ecumenical dialogue among the world great religions. Regardless of creed, nationality or race, the notion of motherhood is the common and unique mark that unites brothers and sisters not only in faith, but in biological reality.
The potential of a fifth dogmatic proclamation concerning the Blessed Mother indeed shows the developing understanding the Church has accumulated over 2000 years of faith and prayer. The Council of Ephesus in 413 first proclaimed Mary as the Theotokos, or Mother of God. Her perpetual virginity, before, during and after the birth of Jesus marks the continued appreciation of Mary's role in salvation history. Subsequent proclamations of her Immaculate Conception in the nineteenth century, and the declaration of her Assumption in the 1950's are acknowledgements in faith that the Church holds the Blessed Mother in the highest esteem in conjunction to the Incarnational Mystery of Jesus Christ's life and ministry. It is only a logical progression in faith and in human understanding that the Church consider Mary as the, "woman with a Redeemer" or Co-Redemptrix of the graces of the redemption.
A proclamation of such magnitude offers the common faiths of the world the opportunity, theologically and philosophically to speculate on all common aspects of our global aspirations towards a world united by common appreciation of Mary's universal maternal place as Mother of all Humanity. The expectation of regarding Mary as the pinnacle example of human co-operation permits all peoples the chance to emulate and practice the same co-operation with each other in faith and practical applications.
Mary, illustrates triune roles of Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix of all graces, and Advocate to Jesus Christ. In this capacity, she is truly representative of a New Evangelization that unites humanity in a journey to comprehend God's Sacred Mysteries for the world.
The time is now to recognize the role we have always held as part of Mary's unconditional participation in the revelation of God's Word...declare her the Mother of all Humanity, leading the collective faithful of the world to a new harmony in the 3rd millennium.
