Merely questioning Mary’s alleged role as “Mediatrix” and “Queen of Heaven” is “Mary bashing” as far as some of our more extreme Freepers go.
Did you read the entire thread?
I suspect, if Mary her authentic self were posting on FR, she’d be even MORE fiercely strident against such hideousness.
I suspect that if we walked a Vatican statue of Mary without bowing, scraping and kissing the caricatured image’s toes
we’d be accused of ‘bashing’ or some such.
Are you saying my posts are hideous?
I don’t think so. But God will be the judge of that, not me.
Pray for us, Blessed Mother.
I’m talking about
the practices of
idolatry and blasphemy
Yes. Certainly God will judge us all on such scores.
And, as Alamo-Girl has well noted many times . . . any and all of us can idolize our own egos, our spouses, our children, our jobs, our beliefs, our hobbies, our bank accounts, our organizations, our denominations, our sins . . . the list is endless.
BTW, characterizing someone’s posts as hideous is well within the rules—as is done quite frequently enough regarding my posts by your cohorts.
Holy Mary, mother fair,
Filled with love for God,
Pray for us in all our needs.
Pray for us today.
I remain very unconvinced that there’s any such praying on the authentic Mary’s part in Heaven.
I’ve never read any reports of such activities nor any reports of prayer meetings in Heaven.
Worship meetings, lots of reports of those.
None of prayer meetings.
It would be one thing if there
There ain’t none.
Hail Mary, full of Grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women & Blessed is the Fruit of thy womb, Jesus!!!
Mother Mary, pray for us; now & always!
Last I recall from
God is not all that thrilled with
vain repetitions, either.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary that never was it known that anyone who fled to Your protection, implored Your help, or sought Your intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, we fly to you, O Virgin of virgins, our Mother. To You we come; before You we stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions, but in Your mercy, hear and answer us. Amen.
May God reveal His Truth and His priorities regarding such idolatry, blasphemy.
The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.
And she conceived of the Holy Ghost.
Hail Mary, ...
Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
Be it done unto me according to Thy word.
Hail Mary, ...
And the Word was made Flesh.
And dwelt among us.
Hail Mary, ...
Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let Us Pray
Pour forth, we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts, that we to whom the Incarnation of Christ Thy Son was made known by the message of an angel, may by His Passion and Cross be brought to the glory of His Resurrection. Through the same Christ Our Lord.
May God Almighty do whatever it takes to draw all who seriously assert that they are “Christians” wholly unto HIM and His priorities.
May God Holy Spirit reveal to each of us called Christian the secrets and intents of our hearts which would compete with His supremacy and His priorities in our lives.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
