Dear correcting a sister,
This is in response to your poem. The Blessed virgin Mother cannot protect you. That is the job of Jesus. She can bring you closer to her Son, but only through prayer, unless you meet her in person and discuss Faith.
May you take Jesus with you everywhere. TJE:thumbsup:
I cannot believe that you said the Blessed Mother cannot protect anyone,this smacks of Protestantism to me, have you never prayed the Litany of the Blessed Virgin?
Mother of good counsel,
Virgin most powerful
Refuge of sinners
Comforter of the afflicted,
Help of Christians.
And at Fatima when Our Lady said to Lucia that
Her Immaculate Heart would be her(Lucias) safe Refuge?
Or how about this statement, ``The protection of Mary accompanies us throughout our lives"--Pope Benedict XV
Then there is the MEMORARE:
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary that never was it known that anyone who fled to [Your Protection], implored Your help, or sought Your intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, we fly to you, O Virgin of virgins, our Mother. To You we come; before You we stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions, but in Your mercy, hear and answer us. Amen.
According to your comments Catholics are in error seeking the protection of the Blessed Mother!
