PM: So, who do you think loves you more - Jesus or Mary?
Rosary: Equallly-because if not for Mary's "yes" there would be no Jesus...
Rosary, even your Catholic friends will tell you that, though you may not have intended it, your statement is blasphemous. Jesus is eternal and infinite God. Mary is a finite, created being and her love could never come close to the Love which God has for you.
Reflect on Paul's prayer for believers recorded in Ephesians,
"For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith--that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
There is nothing contradicted in Rosary's statement. They love equally-he in his capacity, she in hers. Are their capacities equal? No. But that is not what you asked. In charity, V's wife.
Mary is also a finite, created being who stands in the presence of God at this moment, and her love for us is greater than that of any earthly being we know.
It is so Jesus is eternal because He is of the Holy Trinity, BUT the Father so WILLED he become a God-man through MAry. Thus He also created MAry to be the Mother of Jesus for this purpose. Jesus Christ IS TRUE GOD AND TRUE MAN.
MAry is HIS Divine and most pure Mother by the singular GRACE of GOD.
And Jesus I am SURE would not like anyone slapping His MOM down so watch it!
Thanks, petronius for being omniscient and knowing for a fact that her statement is blasphemous. As hard as it is for you to accept, you too will become catholic at the moment of your death, when the reality of God's plan is revealed to you upon your death. Silly man.
