Mary and the Catholic Imagination: Le Point Vierge by Wendy Wright
Mary occupies a richly textured imaginative space in the wider Catholic imagination. More strikingly, she occupies a generous space in the hearts of those who speak to, look to, identify with, implore, honor, and hope in her. In a conceptual world in which sacred presence is powerfully sensed, she is among those presences most poignantly and deeply felt. In the 2010 Madeleva Lecture, Wendy M. Wright, professor of theology at Creighton University, reflects on the nature of the Catholic imagination as viewed through the figure of Mary and suggests that she might be considered the global Catholic Church’s point vierge, a provocative phrase that opens up a dimension of both the Catholic imagination and the mystery of Mary in an intriguing manner. Mary and the Catholic Imagination is bound in smaller format paperback measuring about 4.5 inches wide by 6.75 inches tall which makes it a handy size to carry with for when you have some moments to read and meditate on the author’s words.
