The Blessed Mother Mary
I didn't know what to write about the Blessed Virgin Mary; I sought her help and this happened:
I was in a rush to get my grocery shopping done when all of a sudden, a lady came up to me and asked, "Is Mary the mother of God?"
It was a bit startling that someone would ask me that question along the mayonnaise and salad dressing aisle. I answered, "Of course!"
As I excused myself, she posed a quick one: "Where in the Bible does it say that?"
Since I was really in a rush, I said, "I don't know exactly where in the Bible, but look it up. It's there!" And with that, I left the store.
Lady, if you ever read this blog (God works in mysterious ways.), here are a few Bible passages:
And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. Luke 1:31
As he said these things, a woman in the crowd raised her voice and said to him, “Blessed is the womb that bore you, and the breasts at which you nursed!” Luke 11:27
His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.” John 2:5
As St. Thomas Aquinas said, “To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible.”
