“O Mary, truly God has chosen thee and purified thee, and has chosen thee above the women of the worlds. O Mary!”

About this Event

“O Mary, truly God has chosen thee and purified thee, and has chosen thee above the women of the worlds. O Mary!”

Does it surprise you that the quote above comes not from the New Testament, but from the the Quran, the holy book of Islam?

Islam has a long tradition of reverence for Mary, the Mother of Jesus. In fact, Mary is the only woman mentioned by name in the Quran, which has an entire chapter named after her (Sura 19, “Maryam”). It is because of this shared devotion to Mary that Cardinal Blasé Cupich of Chicago has called Mary “an interreligious bridge” for Christians and Muslims.

Cardinal Cupich recently wrote in America magazine: “Like Catholics, Muslims believe Mary to be pure, courageous and faithful. They also believe that she was free from sin. The Quran calls her an example for believers, a woman of truth, a sign for all peoples and chosen above all women.”

To celebrate our shared devotion to Mary, Precious Blood Renewal Center and The Dialogue Institute of Kansas City are hosting the program “Mother Mary in Catholicism and Islam” Oct. 9, 6-8:30 p.m. The evening will include presentations by Muslim and Catholic scholars and dinner. Suggested donation: $20.

Speakers will cover three topics:

• “Divine Mother, Divine Mover” X will present the Catholic view of Mary through the lens of a spirituality of pilgrimage.

• “Mary and the Calling to Motherhood” X will discuss the high level of dignity and respect given to a mother in Islam in the light of Quran and Sunnah, which is the traditional customs and practices of the Islamic community.
