Without Mary the Mother of God, we fallen creatures would be provided with Divine Justice and Mercy which are pure masculine.
May God preserve us from that!
And so He did. From the Cross, Jesus gave us His own Mother as our own. A Mother able to soften the heart of God Himself, to move Him to Mercy on our behalf for She is a creature just like us except sin.
I do wish our separated brethren would learn to see Mary in this light. We Catholics do not worship Her as divine for she isn’t, but She is the Mother of God nonetheless.
Today, the Pope commended all the souls lost in the Alps disaster to the care of Mary. (I do the same for all my dying patients.) In her keeping they are safest.
