The child of Mary is an evangelist of Jesus

Last month, Cardinal Wuerl (my bishop) blogged "a three-part reflection on learning from Our Blessed Mother how to be evangelizers." The posts are:
  1. Mary, Star of Evangelization.
  2. Mary: Bringing People to Jesus
  3. Mary: Mother of the Church
Mary is both the ideal evangelist -- you can't do more to bring Jesus to the world than she did -- and the ideal model for us as evangelists. In her faith, in her fidelity to the mission given her by God, and in the love she has for the spiritual children given to her by her Son, she teaches us how it's done and she helps us to do it too, according to the mission given us by God and those given us to love by her Son.
