The aim of this paper is to explore the theme of Mary as 'type' of the Church, and to do so with a bifocal ecumenical perspective. The first section of this paper focuses on the persisting reasons for the Protestant critique of Mariology. Mary's ambiguous role as a model for virginity shifts the focus to the second section, which directs the gaze on Mary as a pattern for all believers, the one who typifies the Church's calling – to bring Christ into the world. Protestants are challenged to take seriously the theological logic underlying Marian devotion; Orthodox and Catholics are invited to consider Mary's priestly role and its implications for the ordination of women.
