"They love equally-he in his capacity, she in hers. Are their capacities equal? No."

That is a nonsensical statement. By that definition you could argue that it is entirely possible that your cat loves you as much as Jesus does.

If you know what I am getting at, ask yourself why it is that you are avoiding it.

I've always been impressed with the cruxifiction sequence in John, where Jesus bestows Mary as mother of the disciple that He loved, and then, seeing that all was completed, gave up the ghost.

His very last pre-resurrection act...which completed his work.

Hmm. Powerful stuff. Particularly when I reflect that I am a disciple, and that Jesus loves me.

It's frankly a little difficult, given the above, to get inside the heads of Sola Scriptura types who seem intent on scoring points off of Catholics by reducing Mary to a disposable status, and that's even before reading about the "Queen of Heaven" in Rev. At the beginning of chapter 12 she gives birth to the Christ. She is pursued and persecuted. At the end of chapter 12 she has many children, all of whom bear the testimony of Jesus Christ. It does not go on to reflect that many of her own seed deride her. That role seems left to "others."

Well, cats can't love. What are you getting at, and why play cat and mouse with it? So to speak. :) V's wife.
