This is why it seems so hard to reflect that vision of patience when black-hearted "artists" practice character assassination on the Blessed Virgin...
True, just as they bought the book about numbers in the Sriptures and began trying to make it real. God does not need man to defend him. He is quite able to do that. Those who imagine they mock him will find the joke is on them when they stand before the Great White Throne; except only God will be laughing.
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.
