This is why it seems so hard to reflect that vision of patience when black-hearted "artists" practice character assassination on the Blessed Virgin...
RE: Rich D. 11:01 11/16/2012 RE: Sola Scriptura (1/2) My response: Rich D., you do not understand what I said about Sola Scriptura. Protestants think, fallaciously, that the Bible alone is the authority for Christian doctrine: this is what Sola Scriptura means. But this is a false theory because the Bible nowhere says that it alone is the teaching authority for Christians.
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.
