A Prot friend of mine asked me how could we Catholics call Mary the Mother of God, doings so implies that she is a God also, and thus makes God himself subordinate to his mother?
I told him NO, we don’t believe Mary is anykind of God but a very special creature of God.
Mary is the mother of God just as Barbara Bush is the mother of the President. Does that make Barbara a President? I asked him.
My Prot friend is a football player at the local university. So, if I say his mother is the Mother of a football player does that make her a football player? I asked him.
I am a Manufacturing Engineer at my workplace. Therefore my mother is the Mother of an Engineer. Now, does that make my mother a Engineer also? I asked him.
I also told him because all generations shall call her blessed so we give her …her deserved title which we say she is the Mother of God, and rightfully so!
After a while my friend admited he got the jist of it. And in our debates he no longer brings it up!
Just thought I’d share it with you guys!
