Thoughts on Mary
Bill – On Mary and the rosary – Mary is not God. Mary never was God. And Mary never wants to be God. She’s just one of us, but was the first one of us to follow Jesus. I worship God alone, believing that worshiping Mary is in error. And, in the strictest sense, I pray to God alone.
However, I do ask for help – as Paul asked for prayers from the recipients of his letters. I ask for help from the people on the prayer line at my church. So, why not ask my Mom for a little help? Mary is my Mom because Jesus gave her to me. I have it in writing. You see, I am the disciple that Jesus loves, as are you.
As his mother, Mary is able to see Jesus very clearly. So, when I pray the rosary, I sit at Jesus’ feet with Mary by my side. And I ask her to share in my prayer to Jesus that I may see her Son through his mother’s eyes.
