Titles immediately impart an essential face about the person to whom they refer. From the beginning the Church has used titles to designate aspects of our Lord – some of which are: Messiah, Lamb of God, Son of Man, Son of God, and Sun of Justice. Titles for Mary in the Liturgy and in piety are likewise numerous. They refer to some dignity, honor, distinction, or preeminence attached to her by reason of her rank, office, precedent, privilege, or attainment. In short, each of May’s titles ultimately emphasizes some aspect of her relationship to God or to us. No matter what the title, every one of them recalls the person to whom it is applied, and we give our veneration to her. The present work details in some depth twenty-four official titles which provide a veritable encyclopedia of Mariology enabling the reader to encounter the unique and loving countenance of our heavenly Mother in diverse situations and under a wide variety of aspects.
