You determine everything about Mary, based on the little info recorded in the NT?
You're insane.
You people are really sounding disrespectful of the Mother of Our Lord.
You Preston, prove over and over, you're not an authority on sacred scripture.
The Apostle Paul never had a conversation with your Grandpa in Heaven.
I swear every person who has a 'born again' experience thinks they were called to be a prophet....
Do you honestly believe with your narrow mind that everyone in our world should think just like a catholic, be just like you?(lol)


Catholicism after 2,000 long years, makes up a tiny population in our world. 17%. Less than half practice their faith so now we are down to 8.5%. Not really a big player in the whole scheme of things now is it?

BUSTED!

I don't pay any attention to his writing anymore. They are anti-Christ, and anti-theistic in nature. It took me awhile to "let go".
He believes his conscience makes him a more righteous, when in fact he is but a miserable creature now. His message is for destruction not only of the RCC, but of anything concerning God....How awful.
Robert F says.

..He believes his conscience makes him a more righteous, when in fact he is but a miserable creature now.

Michael says......Robert, you ASSume a lot of things. Never did I ever claim or imply that I was more righteous than anyone, when in fact you are the one who claims to be MOST righteous and state one who does not follow catholicism/christianity is a miserable creature.

I can't imagine what you say to people non christian sitting around you when you are at a sporting event or in a restaurant and you find out they aren't just like you.

Very sad. I like everyone, I don't pick and choose who measures up to me, I treat everyone as an equal, the way God REALLY intended our world to be.

I report news about the catholic church that might not be flattering but news that needs to be told.

Catholic Girl, you seem to know your stuff. I learn a lot from you, thanks. One of many things that puzzle me about Mary. Jesus never once said to pray to her for special favors, plus her "Assumption"...pun intended, but that's pure "assumption", as the bible never mentions her death. She (according to Catholic teaching) "rose bodily" into heaven - how could a material thing be in a spiritual dwelling? and then they claimed she was crowned - spiritually perhaps, but a CROWN in heaven? If they can assume such things, what else can they assume? Do you see why I doubt? They even claim that because she was born sans original sin, she suffered no pain in childbirth...that's a story made up to justify why childbirth hurts - that dang old Eve did it again. Mary most likely gave birth just like any other woman - maybe even got stretch marks and that is NOT an insult.

Hi Sherlayne,
First, a typo concerning St. Ann. It should have read St. Ann silly. I left the y off.

Secondly, I don’t know everything but feel I know enough to get by. When in second grade and everyone was confused about God and religion, teacher stated that we will not understand everything until we die. Think about it, this does make a lot of sense. The universe is huge, larger than we humans can comprehend. When we look out to the heavens we see only a small sliver of the pie.

Throughout our history the Popes have initiated all sorts of ways to pray and to whom, ways to give praise and glory to God, etc. I think it was Pope Leo XIII that gave us the teaching of Mary’s Immaculate Conception. Pope Pious IX gave us the Assumption of the Blessed Mother into heaven teachings which he made the Assumption of the Blessed Mother into heaven as the Patron St. of these United States.

Why do I believe the Popes and their teachings? Because they are all much wiser than I, they are true theologians. Being a mere mortal I don’t have time or knowledge to interpret the writings in the bible. I have enough trouble keeping up with today’s technology, and information coming at us constantly.

Mary is Jesus’ mother as you very well know. Most important commandment given to us from God,“Honor they mother and they father”. The Blessed Mother is the Queen of Heaven. Of course she has a crown. Like a mother she wears many hats :).

It’s written somewhere in Revelations (?) that on that final day, we will all be assumed into heaven (those without blemish that is). When we die, we sleep until judgment day. Yes this is a mystery to me also but you must believe. With God all things are possible.

It’s stated that Mary was born without original sin; God picked her for his mother before she was born. Not sure about the labor pains never looked into that deeply. But those pains are forgotten after childbirth, are they not? Probably the pain is due to Eve and her antics with that tree of life. She may have had stretch marks. God must have a sense of humor. Through the teachings of the church we are instructed not to dwell on things of the flesh, earthly things, things that may rust, be stolen, etc. Only dwell on things that are above, this is all that really matters.

The bible is a book of stories handed down from generation to generation. This is what history is,“His Story”.

"her 'seed' in this prophecy is just that, a word about prophecy, that Jesus will come thru her without the benefit of a man. learn something about the Word of God, before you address something that you dont know anything about.

but that verse which is prophecy doesnt make her anything close to Abraham. He obeyed God, mary coudnt even look after her son which today would give her a prison sentence

"Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with you: blessed are you among women."

"Fear not, Mary, for you have found grace with God."

" The Holy Ghost shall come upon you and the power of the Most High shall overshadow you. And therefore also the Holy which shall be born of you shall be called the Son of God."

" Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb."

"And whence is this to me that the mother of my Lord should come to me? "

" For behold as soon as the voice of your salutation sounded in my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy."

"And blessed are you that have believed, because those things shall be accomplished that were spoken to you by the Lord."

"And Mary said: My soul does magnify the Lord."

"And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Saviour."

"Because he has regarded the humility of his handmaid: for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed."

"Because he that is mighty has done great things to me: and holy is his name."

Isn't it agravating how some people pick and choose things out of bible only to their liking. To take things out of text to their liking and dismiss that which they don't like.

wouldn't it be nice to be able to do the picking and choosing to what we like in our tax returns.:).

have a good day.

Her "seed" means her "egg". Quit forcing your bias against Mary into your scripture interpretation.

And Mary didn't obey God? Didn't she agree to give birth to the Saviour of the world?

Preston, why do you hate Mary so much?

Mary is the Immaculate Ark of the New Covenant.

Exodus 25:11-21 - the ark of the Old Covenant was made of the purest gold for God's Word. Mary is the ark of the New Covenant and is the purest vessel for the Word of God made flesh.

2 Sam. 6:7 - the Ark is so holy and pure that when Uzzah touched it, the Lord slew him. This shows us that the Ark is undefiled. Mary the Ark of the New Covenant is even more immaculate and undefiled, spared by God from original sin so that she could bear His eternal Word in her womb.

1 Chron. 13:9-10 - this is another account of Uzzah and the Ark. For God to dwell within Mary the Ark, Mary had to be conceived without sin. For Protestants to argue otherwise would be to say that God would let the finger of Satan touch His Son made flesh. This is incomprehensible.

1 Chron. 15 and 16 - these verses show the awesome reverence the Jews had for the Ark - veneration, vestments, songs, harps, lyres, cymbals, trumpets.

Luke 1:39 / 2 Sam. 6:2 - Luke's conspicuous comparison's between Mary and the Ark described by Samuel underscores the reality of Mary as the undefiled and immaculate Ark of the New Covenant. In these verses, Mary (the Ark) arose and went / David arose and went to the Ark. There is a clear parallel between the Ark of the Old and the Ark of the New Covenant.

Luke 1:41 / 2 Sam. 6:16 - John the Baptist / King David leap for joy before Mary / Ark. So should we leap for joy before Mary the immaculate Ark of the Word made flesh.

Luke 1:43 / 2 Sam. 6:9 - How can the Mother / Ark of the Lord come to me? It is a holy privilege. Our Mother wants to come to us and lead us to Jesus.

Luke 1:56 / 2 Sam. 6:11 and 1 Chron. 13:14 - Mary / the Ark remained in the house for about three months.

Rev 11:19 - at this point in history, the Ark of the Old Covenant was not seen for six centuries (see 2 Macc. 2:7), and now it is finally seen in heaven. The Jewish people would have been absolutely amazed at this. However, John immediately passes over this fact and describes the "woman" clothed with the sun in Rev. 12:1. John is emphasizing that Mary is the Ark of the New Covenant and who, like the Old ark, is now worthy of veneration and praise. Also remember that Rev. 11:19 and Rev. 12:1 are tied together because there was no chapter and verse at the time these texts were written.

Rev 12:1 - the "woman" that John is describing is Mary, the Ark of the New Covenant, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. Just as the moon reflects the light of the sun, so Mary, with the moon under her feet, reflects the glory of the Sun of Justice, Jesus Christ.

Rev. 12:17 - this verse tells us that Mary's offspring are those who keep God's commandments and bear testimony to Jesus. This demonstrates, as Catholics have always believed, that Mary is the Mother of all Christians.
