Mary, My Jewish Mother


In this talk Dr. Nathanson, at the time a recent convert from Judaism to Catholicism, reflects on Mary, the Mother of God. He mentions his own experience coming from a difficult family situation, with the lack of a mother figure, and how this impacted his failed marriages. One thing that attracted him to the Church was Our Lady - the mother he was looking for. He remarks that there is no parallel figure in other religions. Our Lady has been called "The Aqueduct for God's grace," a title that stayed with Dr. Nathanson. He describes Her as both the sharer of the pain and sufferings of humans, and a signal of that pain and suffering - as well as of hope and joy.
