This is why it seems so hard to reflect that vision of patience when black-hearted "artists" practice character assassination on the Blessed Virgin...
I understood you; you were prevaricating about sainthood; as if it only appears in the Bible. So, I set you straight. When a person of faith is holy, the Church brings our attention to that person. You're miffed because nobody in your Sunday School is very holy, that's all. Your sects don't inspire souls to be holy or become saints. They're into lip service.
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.
