Why need Mother Mary?
by Marj Tipanero
QUESTION: Why need Mother Mary?
ANSWER: We need our Blessed Mother in the same way that we need our earthly mothers. We need our earthly mothers, especially at a young age, for nourishment, rest, comfort - for everything! In the same way, Mary is our spiritual mother - we need her to nourish, comfort and protect us spiritually.
Jesus could have come to our world through a lot of different ways - He could have just suddenly appeared, He could have come down in a blazing chariot of fire, He could have come through a lot of ways. However, He chose to come to us through Mary. He chose to go to the world through Mary. He chose to have a Mother.
As such, the Blessed Mother is our best way to go to Jesus. In the same way that here on earth we need "connections" to reach people of high places - for example, you cannot just call up the President of a country directly without someone close to him helping you - we too need our Mother to go to Jesus. She is the best way to Jesus.
