On the Blessed Virgin Mary, there is more ecumenical agreement between Catholics, Protestants, and Evangelicals, and more possibility for increased agreement, than you might have realized. All this is admirably shown in the following piece by Max Johnson. (Worship November, 2014, reprinted with permission of the journal and the author.) Pray Tell is happy to provide this provocative article on the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God. Happy New Year to everyone!
