    Despite its title this is not so much a book on Mary or Mariology per se as it is a book on the Church’s understanding of itself through its understanding of Mary in relationship with Jesus, hence the title, Mary: The Church At Its Source. Although Mariology is an impossibly broad topic to begin with it is still generally limited – according to the Catholic Encyclopedia – to, ‘the doctrine of the Mother of God, (which) cannot be separated either from the person or from the work of the Re [...]

    This series of lectures and essays on Mariology, along with a class on the subject I took at Mundelein, have totally revolutionized the place Marian doctrine and devotion has in my life. Formerly, I regarded the discipline of Mariology as an obscure, restricted study of 18th- and 19th-century works on Marian devotion, devoid of much systemazation or relevance to Church teaching on Mary, let alone the life of the Church as a whole. With then Cardinal Ratzinger's and von Balthasar's exposition of [...]

    Wonderful in the argument building. This book really defines well the role of the laity, of the priestly office, and what and who the Church are as a whole.

    A decent book with some good points. This book is not to be used as an introduction to Mariology, but rather, must be read by one with a grip on the basics of Mariology or the reader will be overwhelmed or misguided. There is a marked difference in the way these two great theologians think and explain the truths of the faith. Ratzinger explains Mariology from its fittingness while Balthasar explains Mariology from the point that it must have been so. I am more inclined to agree with the fittingn [...]

    A typology of the Church. I was very taken by von Balthazar's comparison of the feminine and masculine aspects of the Church and how we are forgetting the beauty of the feminine because of the misconception that the masculine is greater.

    This was a beautiful collection of thoughts on Mary from Pope Benedict XVIe pictures included really add to it.
