      A Few Words Reflecting on the
      Blessed Mother
      I grew up with what I believe was a healthy respect and reverence for the Blessed Mother as a unique person in salvation history and in the greater view of what it meant to be Catholic. There were several images and statues that held places of honor in our home.  By First Communion I knew how to pray the Rosary as a meditative pray in which Mary always points to her son saying, “Do whatever he tells you.” (NAB John 2:5) By high school I understood her fiat as an ideal response to God’s call to each of us.  It wasn’t until I joined a rosary group at my home parish in the 1980’s that I discovered what I considered a troubling approach to the Blessed Mother. At some point after about a year of gathering in the chapel, praying the standard prayers, that the leadership of the group had an apparent change.  Interspersed with the traditional prayers came readings from “Mary Speaks to her Beloved Priests,” and quotes from a variety of Marian apparitions, both familiar and unfamiliar. Quotes from Lourdes, Fátima, Catherine Labouré, and Medjugorje began to pepper the praying of the rosary. Troubling, the situation came to a head when we were asked to gather outside the Church and stare at the sun because, “Mary will hold a host over it to protect our eyes from damage.” I walked away from the group that very day.
