Talk about a roller-coaster life. Mary goes from being a pregnant social outcast, to the mother of God, to a parent steeped in grief, to a firm and devoted disciple of Jesus Christ. Not many people would say their lives could compare to that. And yet, the pattern of Mary's life follows a familiar road any Christian might recognize in varying detail. God radically reorients the life of a believer, and even the mother of God's own Son is not exempt from that reorientation.
