Why do you love Jesus and Mary?

I’m not sure if this post goes here but here is the question. Why do you love Jesus and Mary? I like to hear your own thoughts and feelings of Jesus and Mary.

  1. I love Jesus because by his dying, he destroyed our death, and by his rising, he restore our life.

  2. I love Mary because she consented to God’s Will, and brought forth the Messiah, the Son of the Living God, and Word made flesh, and the great exemplar of a Christian.

I am trying to get to the point where I could say “I love” them, but I am not fully there yet. Anyhow,

  • I want to love Virgin Mary because she helps me closer to Jesus.
  • I want to love Jesus because when I am closer to Him, His Light helps me see my gray, dark, darker, and darkest spots on my soul. Through this, I have come to realize who I was, who I am, and what I should be.
