How do you balance traditional Catholic practices and modern-day living?
One person asked me : " Do you accept Jesus as your personal savior ? " My reply:
" Do you accept Mary as your personal mother ? "
In a binary thinking world (which may are living in) would conclude that if their answer is no, then your answer to their questions is also no. I know your answer to both questions is a resounding yes, but their answer to both questions is probably a yes/no.
Mary is the Mother of all eternal living flesh. Born again, from the Cross, Disciple “Ecce Mater Tua,” behold your mother, we take her home as John did. This is where we became actual brothers and sisters of Christ with a new Mother, Mary. The sacrifice of Christ returns to the Father from where it came, Heaven. Born again, through our New Mother, Mary and saved by the blood of God, The Host transforms flesh through contact.
