Introduction

Introduction – 4. Christian Insight into Mary
Mother of Jesus Simplified 

Spirituality can often get complex and sophisticated but in this book, we’ve tried to keep it a simple Christian approach in this series. This series of books has some advanced concept in a simple, average, everyday layman’s format. This book will give a brief yet deep overview of Mary the Mother of Jesus and her life in our times. The Five M’s of Mary; Christian Meditation; Mary’s Charismatic Community; Communities in Biblical Times; Mary Ark of Covenant and New Eve and other topics.

There is only one mention of the Virgin Mary in the Acts of the Apostles, after the ascension they returned to Jerusalem. “Together they devoted themselves to constant prayer. There were some women in their company, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and his brethren.” Acts 1:14 Then at Pentecost it is written, “All were filled with the Holy Spirit” and Acts 2:4 Luke says “All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues” indicating that Mary, too, spoke in tongues. The expression of praise and worship is found strongly in the Ark of the Covenant.

Mary is the mother of Jesus. She is Mother of Jesus, Mother of the Eucharist, Mother of His Mystical Body, the three theological bodies. Jesus, unlike anyone else in all history, has three theological bodies, all real – His own resurrected Body, now gloriously reigning in Heaven, his Eucharistic Body now reigning on our altars, and his Mystical Body, the Church. Thus, from the womb of Mary came forth the human body of Jesus, the Eucharist, and the Mystical Body. Mary is the Queen of Mystical Receiving and Ascetical Giving par-excellence.

Both Jim Tibbetts and Fr. Bill McCarthy added chapters to this book. Fr. Bill added: section B; C; D; F. Jim added: A, Section E; Jim 1-6; Fr. Bill 7, 8. Some of the insights, writings and methodology in this book come from the Eminent French Mariologist Fr. Rene Laurentin, one of Jim’s mentors.
