Many mothers elect to abort their Down Syndrome babies. I don’t believe they understand what they have…
Our Protestant brothers and sisters often fail to look back at early Church history when claiming that the Church somehow went off track early on. These early Church ‘errors’, according to some, were corrected some 1500 years later at the time of the Reformation.
The following is a list of questions which may help clear up matters…
Protestants imagine that no community has maintained this true continuity with the early Church. If that is so, I wonder what year the original community founded by Jesus failed and lost its essence? What contemporary writers note this event? A year before this event then, would the Catholic Church have been the proper Church? If it failed right away, what writers in the first 1,000 years of Christian history write about this or why isn’t it noted in the New Testament? And, how did the Church operate before 367 AD, which is the first time any Church Father ever listed the exact same New Testament canon contents that we have today?
Do Protestants have compelling answers to these questions? Or are Protestants who engage with these questions, by the grace of God, future Catholics?
“This is my body…” – Jesus
“This is my body…” – Pro Abortion Argument
See the difference?
Just a quick thought that comes to my mind…
We are all accustomed to thinking of Mary as Jesus’ mother and no Christian will argue that she was chosen by God to bear His Son. But what does that entail? Did her ‘blessedness’ stop at Jesus’ birth?
God blesses all mothers with their children, and He blesses all children with their mothers. And fathers are blessed with both their wives and their children.
In a perfect world, an earthly father has a special caring for his wife and children. He may love all children, but he loves his own in a special way. He may love other women (with REAL, pure love), but he has a special love for his wife.
He chose his wife to be the mother of his children and, therefor, it is his wife he trusts to love and care for his children, and she occupies a very special place in his heart. He may not be perfect, but he does this as best he can.
God IS perfect and his love for the mother of His child is perfect. And to Him, Mary is special.
If Mary is special to God, why should she not be special to us?
The following quote should give us something to ponder. What an amazing observation…
How did God the Father love and care for the Incarnate Son while he was on earth? Through the Virgin Mary. (I mean really can’t you just meditate on that for days and days?) – Mary Kochan
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, Have mercy on my, a sinner.
