I’m sorry, I just reread your post and missed the key point.
Well now. Maybe it would help to look at in the light that not one of us is “like” any other one of us. Nevertheless we still manage to find common ground with each other on some level.
Mary was the “new Eve” but like Eve, she could have chosen to say “no” to God. She had/has that free will just like all of us, more; what separates her from us is that unlike us poor sinners, she CHOSE to always do God’s will, not her own. Still, this doesn’t distance her from us, more it places her in a perfect position to give us a hand when we falter. One does not have to DO a thing to understand it. Mary understands our problems and loves us and most of all wants to help us be as close to her son as possible.
When I want directions on how to get to a destination, I don’t ask someone who is as lost as I am, I ask someone who knows how to get there and has already arrived.
