We Imitate Jesus When We Honor His Mother, Mary!
Here is a St. Robert Bellarmine Quote concerning the role of Mary.
"When we appeal to the throne of grace we do so through Mary, honoring God by honoring His Mother, imitating Him by exalting her, touching the most responsive chord in the sacred heart of Christ with the sweet name of Mary."
"Imitating Him by exalting her!" St. Bellarmine gave us a line worth contemplating.
How did Jesus come to us? Wasn't it through His Mother? Aren't we suppose to imitate Jesus? So, what's wrong with going through Mary to learn how to love Jesus more? Does not scripture tell us Mary's "soul magnifies the Lord?"
To Jesus, through Mary. It's not only Catholic, it's scriptural! ! !
