Yes, we only worship the triune God. Absolutely. But we remember the Advent moment by meditating on these words:

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord (we join Mary in this)

My spirit rejoices in God my savior

for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant (because of this, we participate, too)

From this day all generations will call me blessed:

the Almighty has done great things for me

and holy is his Name

He has mercy on those who fear him

in every generation

He has shown the strength of his arm

he has scattered the proud in their conceit.

He has cast down the mighty from their thrones

and has lifted up the lowly

He has filled the hungry with good things

and the rich he has sent away empty.

He has come to the help of his serrvant Israel

for he has remembered his promise of mercy He remembers this promise of mercy through Mary! After all was said and done from Abraham, Israel, Moses, and so on these Patriarchs are dwarfed for He remembers His promise throught this young woman: Mary, the most highly favored one. God doesn't just select any old Abraham, Israel, or Moses. These were specific people. And she was the one proclaimed: full of grace by the angel of the Lord

the promise he made to our fathers,

to Abraham and his children for ever.

She is our spiritual Mother, .30 Carbine, she is His Mother, and the Almighty's most chaste spouse. It is scriptural.

Lastly:Jhn 19:26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! Jhn 19:27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own [home].

He gave her to us, .30Carbine: John is us, and we must care for her rightful place and honor her.This is not worshipping her, however. V's wife
