The Mother of Our Lord must have a most beautiful soul and spirit. I cannot fathom the pain it must cause to Her when she sees the horrific rejection of children in the womb, given Her astonishing acquiescence to the Will of God to give Her womb a shelter for Our Lord!
We are taught through scriptures that there will come a day when we will have no sorrow and will see no evil thing. But that day has not arrived and I believe Mary The Mother of Our Lord sees the horrible truth as it unfolds around the world, and especially in Catholic households. The truth of our spiritual disease state must crush Her courageous Heart, daily.
That such a Mother shares the heartbreak is sad and yet comforting when the soul awakens. Do I worship Mary? Never. She would never want that. Do I hold her in great esteem? Eternally. She IS the Mother of Our Lord, the Mother of My Lord. How can we not be grateful for such a humble, submitted soul and spirit that God saw so aligned that He chose Her to Mother Our Lord and Savior, God's incarnation among us?
ping to Catholic friends ... something I have wanted to express for sometime now, especially with all the contentious threads regarding Mary. In the shadow of Pro-Life it seems appropriate now ...
Thank you for your beautiful sharing. We, as Christian brothers and sisters, need to be praying for this election in a very committed way....and for a spiritual awakening for our nation.
Your post in 30 is awesome. Mary is the greatest role model of Motherhood so yes she must weep bitterly over abortion.
I would like to share a website directly related to Mary, abortion and the long history of ritual killings of men, women and children in human sacrifices http://www.sancta.org/
Of particular interest might be: “Protectress of the Unborn”
on your post: Just one note for clarity. The Catholic Church has never taught or even proposed the idea of worshiping Mary. It does teach that Jesus is as much Mary's Lord and Savior as He is ours. Mary herself worships Jesus and the Triune God. Just as friends and relatives petition one another for prayers, we petition Mary because as the Mother of our Lord we realize she is closest to him; and no Good Son ignores His mother.
