Mary Mother of God and Our Mother

Being a baby boomer Catholic, all kinds of weird images often go through my head. This is the Mother of God icon. Its the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.

It put me in mind of the Motherhood of Our Lady and how she watches over us and prays for all of us. It also put me in mind of the McCartney song, "When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me, speaking words of wisdom--Let it be." Hey, I told you weird images often go through my head!

wow...i thought there are only three in the trinity...but apparently they have added the mother as well to erase the confusion...

Well, no. Mary is not divine. She is a human being like us. Since she gave birth to Jesus, she is considered the Mother of God, since Jesus *is* a member of the trinity.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
