I understand that the rosary is not Biblical.
The Bible doesn't say much about Mary. The last record of her speaking was her counsel to the servants at the feast at Cana at the beginning of Jesus' public ministry:
"Whatever he says to you, do it." (meaning what ever is Biblical.)
Moreover Mary teaches us about salvation that we should look unto God alone, for she did not trust in herself.
The last time she is mentioned in the Biblical narrative is in the opening chapter of Acts where she is found praying with the disciples before the coming of the Holy Spirit. From then on, the Bible is silent about the rest of her life and about her death.
There you go. I am NOT going to debate you. You attacked what we believe when we were not making a debate thread. This is a devotional thread. We are talking about the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, the title of Mary as patroness of the Americas. We are not arguing about whether YOU think Mary is in heaven or not, about honoring the saints, or anything like that.
Do not ping me back.
Where did Jesus do only as I say (when it is found in the Bible)?
Oh yeah, that's right, Jesus didn't write the Gospels.
Bzzzzzt. Try again. Every prayer and Mystery of the rosary is based on a Biblical event surrounding the life of Jesus.
As always, Mary, the Blessed mother of Jesus, points us to her Son, Jesus. The Wedding Feast of Cana that teaches us that. But where is it said in the Bible that Mary didn't trust herself? That she did or did not? She did trust Jesus, "Do as he tells you".
You understand incorrectly.
This is true,that the Bible does not say much about Mary..but this was due to her great HUMILITY..she wished not to be focused on ,but her Divine Son,Jesus. This is a Mother praising her Son and God!
All that need to be said was Great, on this simple little young girl.
