Let us Defend the Church

I noticed a huge amount of non-Catholics commenting negatively on Our Blessed Mother on the my post for the Novena to Our Lady of Lourdes. It is sad that they reject Mary, Our Mother, who Christ gave to us, His Church: "Jesus therefore had seen his mother and the disciple standing whom he loved, he saith to his mother: Woman, behold thy son. After that, he saith to the disciple: Behold thy mother. And from that hour, the disciple took her to his own" (John 19:26-27).

On one of their blogs, I was called a "Mary worshiper". How sad... Mary, pray for us sinners!

Mary is such an important part of our faith as are the saints, which these commenters challege. I however, welcome their comments. It gives me a topic to pray upon and something to write about. I ask you non-Catholics to please read some of these posts of mine and other websites below. You don't have to agree, but please be informed. I've heard too many times that "Catholics worship Mary." It's time for people to learn the truth, and I want to help spread this truth of the Catholic faith.
  1. Why is Mary sinless?
  2. Why is Mary called Co-Redemptrix?
  3. Everything you'd like to know on praying to the saints
  4. Saint Worship?

Amen moneybags! Prayer is the only way.

It is very very sad when people hate and mock Mary, but actually don't understand what Christ or His Church teaches about her at all.

Yes, this is very very sad. I feel even more sad when some people say that we're actually praying to a demonic spirit that is giving us 'signs' (question posted by heaven_forbid in your other post). To be honest, I've ever put myself in the shoes of Protestants and think like them. But to think that it's the demonic spirit at work... don't you think it's kind of absurd? I don't believe the devils would be so stupid as to send us messages (eg. the monthly messages from Medjugorje) urging us always to live our lives pleasing in God's eyes.

Unfortunately, I even know of some Catholics who mock Mary. Sad...

I'll join you in prayers for all the unbelievers.
