Is anyone else uncomfortable with the the phrase “Our Life, Our Sweetness, and Our Hope.”?
I am. For starters, I live for God/Jesus not Mary. To say Mary is my life is an affront to God and Christ and their Primacy.
I could live with the sweetness though, and see nothing wrong with this word to describe her.
The next words bother me though. Mary isn’t my hope, Christ is, because ultimately is through Him that I get to God.
Can anyone explain this to me in a better way perhaps because that is how I see it.
I pray the Rosary. I love Mary, she is my mother, she does intercede for me and I’m very appreciative for that but to say these things about her, I feel that it elevates her above God. I ommit this when I say the prayer.
