This is why it seems so hard to reflect that vision of patience when black-hearted "artists" practice character assassination on the Blessed Virgin...
crognale different words even in Greek. Petra verses petros. The "Rock" that is supposed to be the foundation of the Church is Peter's profession of Faith not the man himself. f it were as you say then YHWH wopuld be allowing his own church to violate his commandment in the OT of no graven images. Somehow I don't think that YHWH goes around doing that.
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.
