Mary, Mother of God

"Woman, behold your son"
"Son, behold your Mother"

For those who actually wonder about all the churches and all the denominations, and if maybe Christ only meant for there to be One true church, the words above are one of those helpful lil' clues.

The fact that most non-Catholics ignore Mary is very telling, and should be obvious to anyone that a church that denies Her place in salvation history is not a church seeking to honor Christ, but one (consciously or not) that is molding Christianity into it's own image.

Actually, to follow the Protestant Jesus, who for no apparent reason (as per their theology), made His mother watch Him suffer and die a horrible death, is kinda nuts. If she was to play no part other than birth chamber, a loving God would have sent her to heaven much earlier, as He did with St. Joseph.

Either She was to play a larger part, as Catholics are taught (and most early reformers believed), or we are serving a very cruel savior indeed!
. . . .thankfully, that is not the case.

"And I will put enmity between you and the woman"
Genesis 3:15

So, if the woman referenced in Genesis is our Lady, who other than our Lord does Satan fear and hate more? . . . and if your church denies our Mother, who are they really serving?
