Fr. Donald Senior, cp, paints a picture of Mary as the premier disciple of Christ. He gives his listeners a deeper look into the life of Mary by focusing on the Gospel writer's individual, yet diverse, portraits of her within the historical biblical context. By studying the various Marian passages that are within the Gospels, along with parallel passages of Jesus, he weaves a multi-faceted approach to Mary, both in the New Testament and in the Christian life. Fr. Senior also takes more than a passing glance at the historical experience of Mary from the Protestant perspective. By emphasizing the evangelist's portrayal of Mary as the primary focus for this presentation, Fr. Senior provides the quintessential experience for his listeners to discover Mary as Theotokos, the God-bearer. Mary is depicted as a disciple of her Son, and as an activist of God's holy word, and as the destiny of God's holy people.
