Why need Mother Mary?

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.

I think she feel lonely and want to spend rest life to a life partner. You must support her decision which is not easy to take. I hope you try to understand the situation of your mother. However, I want australian essay writers but love this site which is sound good having unique content as well.

Agreed. Mary had the free will (a gift to all souls by GOD) not to offer herself as vessel for GOD to come to the world as SON OF MAN. By choosing to offer herself for this purpose she deserves our VENERATION not WORSHIP. Since our LORD came to the world through MARY, she deserves the honour of being an intercession, mediator between us and JESUS, her SON, GOD OUR SAVIOUR
