This is why it seems so hard to reflect that vision of patience when black-hearted "artists" practice character assassination on the Blessed Virgin...
Red, I did so for a very long time many years ago. But the questions kept multiplying while the answers remained elusive. The Bible, with its many contradictions and fantastical stories provided little help. I finally decided that insignificant, ignorant me was not going to arrive at anything that resonated of truth. And if it was important to God that I know of him and his wishes, he, who made the billions of stars in the universe, could easily find a way to communicate directly with me. To this day, that has not happened. When and if it does occur, expect to see me on every news, and late night television program -- I'll definitely let the world know.
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.
