Mary: The Hidden Life With Jesus

“Mary’s life too is “hid with Christ in God” (cf. Col 3:3) through faith. For faith is contact with the mystery of God. Every day Mary is in constant contact with the ineffable mystery of God made man, a mystery that surpasses everything revealed in the Old Covenant. From the moment of the Annunciation, the mind of the Virgin Mother has been initiated into the radical “newness” of God’s self-revelation and has been made aware of the mystery. She is the first of those “little ones” of whom Jesus will say one day: “Father, … you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to babes.” (Mt 11:25) For “no one knows the Son except the Father.” (Mt 11:27) [yet she does not know him as the Father does]” —Redemptoris Mater, article 17
