Reclaiming Mary

A friend of mine wrote this a while back but it’s just gone online : Reality – Issue 66 – Reclaiming Mary by Rosemary Dewerse.

Today Mary is still accorded a very high place by Roman Catholics, while amongst Protestants — who have inherited the aversion of their forefathers — she is a victim of conscientious neglect.
But is this neglect fair to the Mary of Scripture? Could it be possible that the Protestant tradition has, in fact, starved itself of a potentially significant contributor to our understanding of faith, discipleship, and (to borrow a phrase from Radford Ruether) the “feminine face of the church”?
