As you read the book, try to remember that the pictures of Christ and Mary that so many people revere are just pictures of models. No one knows what Christ looked like. We do, however, know how he acted and it is his example we are taught to follow. As for Mary, it was never intended that men would worship her. But, people being people, they have put her on the market and profitted greatly by their chicanery.

we know some of how He acted, but as the bible teaches us, much of what He said and taught is not contained in the bible.

those who believe Jesus of Nazareth is the Incarnate Word, the Second Person of the most Holy Trinity want to know as much about Jesus, His life and His teachings as possible. that is why we include Sacred Tradition with Sacred Scripture in our teachings about Jesus.

who are these people who worship Mary? they are not Catholics. so, who are you referring to when you speak of men who worship Mary?

A Christian can be crushed gazing at the picture of Mary standing at the foot of the cross, watching her beloved son suffocate and die. But in that vision, she stands there for hours, patiently enduring her suffering. For two millennia, she has been a role model for Christians, a woman who practiced obedience in the most difficult of human circumstances, with fervent hope for what this sacrifice will offer all mankind as it struggles with sin.

This is why it seems so hard to reflect that vision of patience when black-hearted "artists" practice character assassination on the Blessed Virgin...
