Feast of Mary, Mother of God...she's your Mom too!

Brother Sama gives a great homily on Mary. It is impossible for the Christian to understand Mary and her place of honour without understanding the role of the mother in Eastern/Oriental kingdoms. Generally the king's mother, not his wife, is considered the queen. Being easterners, the Twelve Disciples, as they came to understand Jesus as King, would have understood Mary's place as their Queen and Mother. All of her actions and Christ's words about and toward her would have been understood in this sense.

God sent his Son so that we might receive adoption as sons.

Its on!

I recently watched a few Youtube videos that highlighted for me the fight we as followers of Christ are in. All across the globe, the evidence shows that Satan is making his final push. He is furious with anyone who attempts to hinder his drive to destroy civilization and, ultimately, our souls. And you can see his anger at in these faces of these "protesters".

Mary, Help of Christians, Pray for us.
