Blessed Mary

        If the Catholic Church is the most misunderstood church in the world, then Mary the Mother of Jesus must be the most misunderstood women in the world. 
        As I mentioned in a previous post, I am basically a simple-minded, unsophisticated, and even naive person.  To me, if I love Jesus, how can I not love his own mother?  On the cross, the Lord gave his mother to St. John to be his mother before he expired.  If she's good enough for St. John, she's certainly good enough for me.  After Jesus, she experienced deep sorrow more than anyone else (as prophesied by Simeon at the Presentation of Jesus).  At the wedding in Cana, Mary told others to do whatever Jesus tells them.  Yes, she always wants all to do God's will, leading them to her Son.  Invite her to be your partner in doing God's will and you will never go wrong.
        A loud and clear note: We Catholics do not worship Mary, because she is also a creature like us, albeit a very special one favored by the Lord.  A lot of us simply love her very much.
