In this 1987 encyclical, John Paul II reminds us that Mary is the greatest saint, and he explains why this is so. John Paul II calls her the “most excellent expression of the feminine genius.” Mary’s ‘yes’ to her role in God’s plan places her at the center of salvation history. This study helps women understand and appreciate the place Mary holds in the Church. As the patroness of Endow, she is the model for all Christian women to love and emulate. We have such a deep love and relationship with our Blessed Mother, you will see even our logo is resembled after her. With the stars representing her crown, we are asking her, as the ultimate witness of the feminine genius, to overshadow our work and pray for the women close to our mission.
