The Annunciation: Opening up to The Blessings of God

with Fr. Alec Scott

If we claim that the Blessed Virgin Mary is the greatest individual of all mankind, what is it that she did or did not do to make her so? And if, as Catholics, we believe the she holds this privileged place, doesn’t it seem contradictory that certain famed saints would state that we are all greater than the Blessed Virgin Mary? Listen up with Rev. Alec Scott to discover just how these two claims are not actually at odds and, in fact, are completely coherent with one another in light of the Annunciation.
