I was listening to Catholic Answers Live today and the topic of Mary worship came up. The guest on the show made such a good point and I’d like to share it.
Those of us who understand true devotion to Mary understand that it ONLY brings us closer to Christ. Satan knows this and will do ANYTHING to keep people from growing closer to Christ, even spreading lies about devotion to Christ’s mother. If he can convince people that devotion to Mary actually leads them AWAY from Christ he can effectively keep them from growing closer TO Christ.
That thought made me feel so sad for our Protestant brothers and sisters because they are so convinced that they know what Marian devotion is all about and that it’s a bad thing. They have absolutely no idea that they fell for the lie of the Evil One. Rather, he has successfully convinced them that WE are the ones who have fallen for the lie, even as we grow ever closer to Christ as we look at His face through the eyes of his mother.
Don’t ever get into an argument with anyone about Mary worship. Just pray for them!!
