William Wordsworth called Mary, the mother of Jesus, “our tainted nature’s solitary boast.” Who was this extraordinary woman, and how should we understand the key dogmas about her life and nature? Bishop Barron offers a crash course on Mary in today’s episode. A listener asks why God created us as humans instead of as angels.
