Abstract It is matter for concern that as yet so little attention is given in formal ecclesial statements to the insights of feminist theologians, even when the traditions associated with Mary the mother of Jesus are being re-evaluated. The Anglican and Roman Catholic International Commission document is inevitably cautious in seeking convergence in what is said about Mary. Even so, there is no argument presented for continuing to emphasize Mary as a model of obedience rather than of courage, for instance, let alone as inspiration for the tough pursuit of justice, as her song of praise to God might suggest. Further, there are implications for a renewed understanding of ‘church’, of human relationships within it, of sacrament, preaching and ministry, as well as of the significance of women’s bodily presence within the celebration of redemption which could be implications of reconsidering the traditions associated with Mary.
