I have a question. Why do we as Catholics, clearly see Genesis prophecy of a new Eve in Mary, and certain Protestants can’t? My daughter’s religion teacher keeps on telling her that “Mary was just another woman, like us”. I’m proud to say that my daughter reponds to her religion teacher with Genesis and “The Wedding in Canna” along with other biblical references as clear symbols of Mary’s greatness. The teacher quotes Dueteronomy and other old testament quotes. I just don’t understand the anymosity towards our Lord’s mother.
You may see it as animosity, but I definately hold none toward Mary. She was blessed to be the earthly mother of Christ, highly favored, but only human, with all our faults. I draw the line at praying to dead people, when clearly the Bible says there is 1 intercessor for us, and that is Christ the Lord, no one else can do anything for us.
**I just dont understand the anymosity towards our Lords mother.**
Neither do I.
I have a whole slew of Biblical quotes on this subject. Typology that ties the Old Testament to the Old Testament.
One of my favorites is the person who touched the (Old) Ark of the Covenant without using the poles correctly. He immediately died.
Likewise, this typology leads to the perpetual virginity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. No one touched her; St. Joseph was a chaste spouse. The Holy Spirit came over her and Christ was conveived.
