The role of Mary and her place in the devotional life of believers has long been both a source of inspiration and controversy among Christians. In the present time, no less than in past centuries, Mary continues to receive much attention as Christians ponder her example and its meaning in the contemporary world.

The three papers will address different ways in which the life of Mary, as portrayed in both the New Testament and subsequent tradition, continues to challenge and shape our own conceptions of the Christian life and vocation.
