Gomez: Throughout church’s history, Mary has brought ‘a message of hope’

Mary’s role in history has been as “a mother bearing a message of hope,” from the first days of the church “when the mother of Jesus was at the center of the apostles’ community in Jerusalem,” said Los Angeles Archbishop José H. Gomez.

“As believers, we need to see beyond the chaos of current events and seek to find the will of God in the present moment,” he wrote in his Sept. 30 “New World of Faith” column in Angelus, the archdiocesan online news outlet.

“For this, Mary holds the key because it is through her that Jesus Christ entered into human history. And he is still at work, shaping the world’s course and direction,” he said.
