No Blessed Virgin Mary, No Christmas and No Salvation by Jesus.

Non Catholic christians are proud to have statues of Mary and St. Joseph in their nativity scenes on the front lawn.  But they then go and criticize us for having statues of Mary.  It is the devil who has closed their eyes and hearts to the crucial role Mary plays in God’s plan of our salvation.  Break away from the only Church Jesus started and you get confused.  Then the devil uses you to attack what God holds holy, like the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Dormation of the Blessed Virgin Mary_KONRAD von SoestFrom the beginning of Christianity, the devil has attacked Jesus by attacking His mother Mary.

The Nestorian heresy denied the humanity of Jesus.  Jesus is the divine second person of the Holy Trinity, (Father, Son Jesus and Holy Spirit).  Jesus is a divine person with two natures, divine and human.  The Council of Ephesus declared Mary the Mother of God in 431.  That was because she truly gave birth to her Son Jesus, who is God.  “And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and cried out, Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, and Who am I that the Mother of my Lord should come to me?” Luke l:43.

Jesus truly took on His human nature (flesh) from His mother Mary (and the Word became flesh John 1:14).  He was conceived by the Holy Spirit in the womb of the Virgin Mary (you will be overshadowed by the Holy Spirit Luke 1:35).  God the Father is Jesus’ Father and Mary is His mother.

C019_VirginAs soon as a group of christians break off from the true Catholic Church, their view of Mary becomes distorted.  Every time a Jehovah Witness comes knocking on your door, they tell you that you have graven images and worship Mary.  The devil is working through them, because they do not believe Jesus is God.  Ask them straight up the next time they come to visit you, is Jesus God?.  They also do not believe in celebrating Jesus’ birthday.  They deny that Jesus was God and therefore do not recognize the important role of Mary.

We Catholics have never worshipped Mary.  She is only human like ourselves.  But we respect her so much because God chose her to be the New Ark of the Covenant to bear His only begotten Son.

There are different levels of honor given to God, Mary and the saints.  To God alone is given adoration and worship called latria.  Special veneration, not worship, is given to Mary and is called hyperdulia and dulia for the saints whom God has glorified in heaven.  Worship (latria) is so far from honor (dulia) as creation is from the creator.

Virgin Showing the Man of Sorrows_MEMLING, HansGod specifically created and chose Mary out of all humans to be the immaculate mother of His Son Jesus.  Mary carried God Jesus in her womb for 9 months.  Mary and St. Joseph took care of Jesus until He began His public ministry.

Without Mary giving our human nature to Jesus, it would have been impossible for Him to die on the cross and win for us pardon for our sins and eternal life.  Without Mary the propitiatory sacrifice on the cross could never have taken place.  Thank you Mary for saying yes to God’s will.

At His death on the Cross, Jesus gave His mother Mary to His disciple St. John, and in that way gave her us Catholics to be the mother too.

We are so blessed to know how much God appreciates what Mary did for Him by bearing, raising and loving his Son Jesus.

The devil loves it when, so called followers of Jesus, do not appreciated Mary.  He hates her too.  “And a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.  And being with child, she cried travailing in birth, and was in pain to be delivered.  And there was seen another sign in heaven, and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns; on his heads seven diadems: And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven and cast them to the earth: and at the dragon stood before the woman who was already to be delivered; that, when she should be delivered, that he might devour her son.  And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with an iron rod: and her son was take up to God and to his throne.” Revelations 12:1-5

Nativity_PIERRE, Jean-Baptiste-Marie 2God created all the Universe for love of us.  But He created Mary for love of His Son Jesus.  Who are we to not love whom God loves?  Let us thank God for the great gift of Mary who is truly the Mother of His Only Son and our mother as well.

  2. MARY, THE MYSTICAL CITY

    Mary, Mystical City
    where Jesus, our Savior, resides
    look down on us with pity
    who are carried with the tides

    Will we ever fathom
    the greatness of Your being
    satan spitting his venom
    to prevent our souls from healing

    But You, God’s living Tabernacle
    are constantly pointing to Your Son
    to prevent us from sudden debacle
    to bring us the Victory already won

    We cry out to You, Oh Mystical City
    to pull us out of the dangerous sinkholes
    we are willing to be gritty
    to save our eternal souls

    Mary, our Mother spread Your Mantle over us to keep us safe in Your City.

    Apocalyptic Vision  

    O Woman, clothed with the sun
    the moon under Your feet
    You, in Whom Salvation begun
    O Mary, Mary name so sweet

    O heart so full of smarts
    come defeat our self-conceits
    renew our ungrateful hearts
    O Gateway that to Jesus leads

    O dearest Mother, Virgin pure
    upon your children blessings shower
    against the devil most effective cure
    O come to annihilate satan’s power

    O sing with us a whole new song
    of Unity and Godly Peace
    Awaiting your Triumph all along
    O help us fulfill the Heavenly pleas.

  4. Father, would you consider the Protestants deniers of the Trinity, since they deny the Son being born of the Ever-Virgin Mary as well as the establishment of His Church and the Catholic Faith? Or as they insist the Holy Ghost is one who is under their command to supply all the false “interpretations” they have from the Holy Bible, etc.?
    It is understood that they believe in some sort of trinity (which, subjectively, can be anything they want it to be) – yet can we say they believe in THE Trinity as God truly IS?
