There are many exegetical and liturgical sources comparing the Virgin to the
officiating priest. During the mass, he raises the Eucharistic bread and wine whose
purpose is to offer to the faithful the only Son of Mary. It is in this perspective that the
Virgin displays, in certain number of examples, the attributes of the priest giving her a
sacerdotal meaning. She presents herself as the eminent model of the priest. However,
this idea can not be applied systematically to all Marian images. These must include
specific indications going in this direction.
