Join the Deepertruth team as they look into Mother Mary's journey to promote her Son Jesus Christ. The Catholic Church from the very beginning held the Virgin Mary with high honor for her role in Salvation. It is like the opponents of Mary refuse to admit that she had anything to do with it? It is through her yes that the door was opened for all of us.
She truly is the Woman who is the Mother of the “rest of her offspring, those who keep God’s commandments and bear witness to Jesus”. So, again, who am I going to recognize as the arbiter of truth, the Church founded by Christ 2,000 years ago or a group founded in 1973 making bold attacks on the people of God?
Looking again of the honor given to Mary, “Theotokos”, Mother of God, Pope Paul VI at the Second Vatican Council renamed the Feast celebrated 1 January from “Feast of the Circumcision” to “Mary, Mother of God”: “In the revised arrangement of the Christmas season, we should all turn with one mind to the restored solemnity of the Mother of God.
This feast was entered into the calendar in the liturgy of the city of Rome for the first day of January. The purpose of the celebration is to honor the role of Mary in the mystery of salvation and at the same time to sing the praises of the unique dignity thus coming to “the Holy Mother…through whom we have been given the gift of the Author of life.”
