Day #60: Lumen Gentium 55-56

In today’s excerpt from the Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, we continue with our reflection of the Blessed Mother.  Today we look at her role in salvation history, both her being forshadowed in the Old Testament (article 55) and her cooperation in the Incarnation (article 56).

Here are the Scripture citations:

284 Cf. Gen. 3:15.

285 Cf. Is 7:14; cf. Mich. 5:2-3; Mt. 1:22-23.

286 Cf. Lk. 1:28.

287 Lk. 1:38.

And the  footnotes:
