Who Was Mary To Jesus, So To Us

Who Was Mary To Jesus, So To Us

An article helping us understand the Marian passages of the Bible more clearly.

Many Christian denominations try to undermine the role of Mary in the life of a Christian, though their teachings are not founded on the word of God, they are very much appealing. However, the word of God very convincingly speaks of the role of Mary in the life of a Christian.

Mary, the partner

The wedding at Cana is actually a declaration by Jesus about His partnership with Mary. Many people consider this as an instance of Jesus declaring that Mary has no role in salvation. But the fact is quite different. When Mary tells Jesus,” They have no wine”, Jesus makes use of this opportunity to show the world that Mary is his partner in the process of salvation. Jesus tells her,” Woman, what concern is that to you and to me?”

If the sentence had been,” What concern is that to me?” or “What concern is that to you?”, it would have been a very insulting one. Such is the answer given to a person without any relation or to a person without any substantial relation. But Jesus question was completely different,” What concern is that to you and to me?” This is a question between two partners.

Only partners ask the question,” What is it for us?” An outsider asks, “What is it for me?” or “What is it for you?” An insider asks,” What is it for us?” So with this question, Jesus openly declared that Mary is his partner in the process of salvation.

Mary’s authority respected

Jesus not only declares to the world that Mary is his partner but also shows to the world that He respects her partnership. Even though Jesus said that his time had not yet come, Mary said to the servants,” Do whatever he tells you.” This can be said only by a person who has real authority. Jesus without uttering a word does whatever is required.

If Jesus wanted to show that Mary had no role, this was the best opportunity to do that, because just by not doing what was required for that family, he could have shown that Mary had nothing to do with the things he was going to do. Here Jesus declared to the world, “I have given authority to this lady to decide when and where I should do my work. And I will do it even if it is not in my mind to do that.”

Mary knew Jesus’ plans

Jesus told Mary,” My hour has not yet come.” Jesus tells about what is to take place only in later days. When Jesus tells Mary that his hour has not come, it should be understood that Mary was told or revealed what was to take place, because Mary’s asking for a miracle admits her knowledge of Jesus powers (Jesus had not performed any miracle until then) and Jesus’ reference ‘my hour has not come’ also takes for granted that Mary knew what Jesus was going to do and when he was going to do such things.

The word of God says,” Jesus did this, the first of his signs, in Cana of Galilee, and he revealed his glory; and his disciples believed him.” Even before his disciples came to know Jesus’ powers and believed, Mary knew Jesus mission and had unshaken belief in him.

Mary at the beginning and at the end

When Jesus performed his first miracle, Mary was with Jesus. When Jesus performed his greatest mission and ended his public life, Mary was with Jesus. When Holy Spirit came upon the disciples, Mary was with them.

Many people take into consideration the volume of things said by Jesus about Mary to measure her importance. But we must leave the quantity of the matter said by Jesus about Mary. Instead, we must think of the importance of the places where Mary appears in the scene. We must ponder the depth of the sentences about Mary, not the length of the sentence. If we do so, we will find only very pithy sentences about Mary.

So let us give as much importance to Mary as Jesus gave, not less, not more. Jesus declared her as co-redemptorist. Let us accept her as the co-redemptorist. Jesus gave her the authority to advance the time of redemption. Let us make use of it.

Jesus gave Mary permission to ask Jesus to do something in others’ life even if it does not concern him. Let us ask her to intercede for us.

Mary, Purgatory and The Bible

Mary, Purgatory and The Bible

Mother Mary, Purgatory and The Bible

Hear the following talk from Apologetics about Mary and Purgatory.

Mary and the Bible – Purgatory and the Bible

Mother Mary

When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom He loved standing near, He said to His mother, “Woman, behold, your son!”

Then He said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” And from that hour the disciple took her into his own home. – John 19:26-27

Called in the Gospels “the mother of Jesus”, Mary is acclaimed by Elizabeth, at the prompting of the Spirit and even before the birth of her son, as “the mother of my Lord”.

In fact, the One whom she conceived as man by the Holy Spirit, who truly became her Son according to the flesh, was none other than the Father’s eternal Son, the second person of the Holy Trinity.  Hence the Church confesses that Mary is truly “Mother of God” (Theotokos) – CCC #495
