GONZALEZ HERNANDEZ, Jorge Manuel. Ave Maris Stella: Care in Silence. En-clav. pen [online]. 2023, vol.17, n.34, e629.  Epub 15-Sep-2023. ISSN 2594-1100.

This work aims to present the characteristics of care in silence, which is inherent in Christian consciousness and which we recognize in the affectivity embodied in the person of Mary. This embodiment characterizes Christian hope, which is always vital and manifests itself through silent acts assumed as duties that do not seek attention for themselves. These acts include cordiality and courtesy, fostering a sense of communion and creating community. In short, we intend to present the Christian perspective on care and its daily embodiment in different human contexts to offer an alternative to the immanentism that characterizes contemporary life. This immanentism emphasizes the importance of direct experience and present life at the expense of historical and transcendent perspectives. At the same time, it is important to recognize - and this is work that each individual must undertake for themselves - the hope of the living, which is realized through acts of love in Christ towards everything and everyone before a permanent spirit of unredeemed publicity of the dead sets in, as Chesterton would say. The article affirms that Christian hope can only be fulfilled in the moment of encounter between consciousness and its primordial contingency: either succumb to the allure of technified reason or surrender to the promise of eternal salvation.
