This is why it seems so hard to reflect that vision of patience when black-hearted "artists" practice character assassination on the Blessed Virgin...
eddie...listen CAREFULLY..... GRACE is God's FREE, UN-MERITED GIFT ("Charis") that He bestows on people. GRACE and TRUTH came by JESUS CHRIST. God searched the world over, and found a JEWISH girl who was WORTHY to receive HIS GRACE, and be the vessel to bring God's salvation into the world. Mary was BORN IN SIN, like the rest of us. Mary, like the rest of us, needed God's salvation thru the GRACE of her Son Jesus to receive God's salvation. WE ARE SAVED BY GRACE, THRU FAITH..NOT OF OURSELVES, IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD, NOT WORKS, LEST ANY BOAST
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.
