Not here to denegrate Mary or the Church of Rome although I'm not a Catholic either. None the less, to denegrate her is to denegrate Him, Christ! For, because, 'Inasmuch as you have done it to one of the least of these my brothers (or sisters or my Mother) you have done it unto me. Toibin brings shame on himself more than on anyone else. So let it be.
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...
