An Apologetic Treatise 

of 

Our Ever Blessed Virgin Mother

 

 I would like to discuss a little bit about the Blessed VirginMary.  Let’s first begin with some history.  At the beginning of Genesis there was woman God made of Adam’s rib, her name was Eve, I am sure you know who she is.   She was the first woman.  We all know how that story ends right?  It ends with Eve being tempted by the serpent and eating from the forbidden tree.  As a punishment to all for the first man and woman’s disobedience, God punished them both with having to leave a Garden of Eden and experience death and loss of eternal life.  This death I am talking about is not just death of the body but it is death of the soul.  Adam and Eve and all their descendants had no chance at Heaven, after Adam and Eve’s disobedience.  God had meant for them to live forever because He loved them so very much, even more than we can comprehend.

 

 


This brings me to the Blessed Virgin Mary she had to be conceived without the stain of original sin,she had to be a sinless vessel. the sin that all of us have when we are born because of the disobedience of our first parents Adam and Eve. The Blessed Mother had to be a perfect vessel for the Word of God to be placed, the Word made flesh, Jesus.  This was done so that we, the fallible sinful human could have another chance at eternal life.  I know what you are thinking, what? No way! That is why Jesus came and died and was raised for and you are correct in saying so. But God made a perfect vessel just like the people of Israel made for Tablets of the Ten Commandments to be kept safe in.  This gold vessel precisely made, carried the hand written Word of God. This vessel was called the Arc of the Covenant. 

 

 

The Blessed Virgin Mary was immaculately conceived, precisely made, according to Gods Holy plan just as the Arc of the Covenant had been made thousands of years before.  This Arc, the Blessed Virgin Mary contained the hand written Word of God made flesh, Jesus.  This handmade Word of God would come in another perfectly sinless made vessel. This vessel would be a young Jewish Virgin Girl. The New Arc of the Covenant would contain the Son of the Most High, the word made flesh Jesus Christ.

 

The reason I have gone into so much detail is to explain why we Catholics pray for the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary the mother of God made flesh, if for not any other reason we should respect and love her for that reason alone.  She with her “YES” to the Holy Spirit the night of the Annunciation gave us once again the chance at eternal life, something that had been lost when the forbidden fruit was eaten many years before in the Garden of Eden by Adam and Eve. 

 

 

Now in defense of the veneration honor and love for our Blessed Virgin Mary Mother of God, the Mother that Jesus gave to us while He was dying on the cross. Jesus gave His Mother not only John His favorite disciple but to all us, His brothers and sisters. He entrusted the care St. John to His Mother and His Mother to John (US).  Even in today’s society who doesn’t want their mother loved and cared for and treated with the utmost respect and protected?  Our mothers carried us for nine months and then cared for us until we were old enough to take care of ourselves, am I correct? With that being said, for those of you who are Catholics who have not had the Dogma of our faith explained or for those of you who are of a different faith, we do not worship the Blessed Mother we love and respect Her and we ask for Her help in difficult times just as you would your own mother or family member who you love and care about.  Who better to ask for intervention than the Mother of God the Word made Flesh? Instead of asking for prayers from a sinful human you can ask the sinless Mother of Jesus.

 

 

I had a Catholic ask me the other day “Why do you feel you need to pray to the Blessed Mother and the Saints, why don’t you just go to God”.  I explained this to my 11 year old son not too terribly long ago.  If you had gotten in trouble with your father for doing something wrong, who did you go to for help to ease things, maybe your mother? This is similar; we go to our mother because we are in need of her help, she intercedes for us.  Do we have to go through the Blessed Virgin Mary I am not sure, but I know for a fact that it has helped me more times than I can count. I think it may be easier on us and just maybe God will be easier with our punishment, when the Mother of His only Son intervenes for us, remember God picked her, she is something very special.

 

 

Let’s tackle the prayers of intercession to Our Ever Blessed Mother and to the Saints.  I cannot really elaborate on praying to the saints although I do like to read about them, I also look up to them as a role models for the virtuous lives they led, but I am not one that prays on a regular basis to the Saints.  I do pray and ask for intervention from Our Blessed Mother by way of the Rosary. The Rosary that I feel will lead us to the salvation our Lord God wants for all His Children.  It has helped me more times than I can count in my life.  After praying the Rosary and really meditating on what it says (the life of Christ) it is the best prayer we can pray besides our Holy Mass.  I believe in my heart that this will be the chain that will bind satan.

 

With all of that being said I hope that helps you understand the reason most Catholics ask for the help and intercession of the Most Blessed Ever Virgin Mary Mother of God.


The words of the Angel Gabriel in the book of Luke 1:28 And the angel being come in, said unto her: Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. 29 Who having heard, was troubled at his saying, and thought with herself what manner of salutation this should be.30 And the angel said to her: Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found grace with God.31 Behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and shalt bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name Jesus. Luke 1:42 Elizabeth said: And she cried out with a loud voice, and said: Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. 

This translates into the Hail Mary which is scriptural:
Hail Mary full of grace the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou amongst women and blessed if the fruit of thy womb Jesus, holy Mary Mother of God pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death, Amen.
