This is why it seems so hard to reflect that vision of patience when black-hearted "artists" practice character assassination on the Blessed Virgin...
It is unfortunate that yet another book has deflected men's attention from Christ who is the only pathway to God. If one really wants to stop people from following Jesus, one should simply allow Mary worship to continue unabated. As long as people pray to her, they are not reaching God. For the Word says we have only one advocate with God the Father and that is Jesus, the Son.
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.
