The Demeaners

Alright, SR, you are my inspiration today!  SR commented on my post, “Mary, Mother of God” that other Christian religions think of our reverence of Mary as “idol worship” and on her post on Being Faithful To Grace, “Thanking God Today That I am a Catholic And For my Catholic Brothers and Sisters”, in which […]

Mary, Mother of God, Part 2

I am back for part two of why Catholics have a special reverence for Mary.  Yesterday, I spoke about Mary, the mother of Jesus, and how she, in spite of many difficult propositions in her conversation with the Angel Gabriel, said yes to God and became the mother of the Son of God.  Today I […]

We Catholics have a special devotion to the Virgin Mary.  I guess I don’t quite understand why other Christian religions do not.  Mary is an example to us of how to follow God.  To start, Mary was a girl when the Angel Gabriel came to her and said, “Hail, full of grace.  The Lord is […]

Resurrection

I  have been experiencing internet trouble.  I wrote this Sunday and just after I saved it and before I could publish it, my internet connection went down.   Happy Sunday!  My post today isn’t specifically Catholic related, but Fr Jim had a great homily this morning.  He started out talking about last weekend, the big […]
