Mary was merely a chosen woman, a sinner, saved by grace.
Jesus is the only one who suffered, why would you share His Glory with any mortal?

"Mary was merely a chosen woman, a sinner, saved by grace."
She was saved by grace alright, but she never sinned.
"Jesus is the only one who suffered, why would you share His Glory with any mortal?"
As far as Jesus being the only one who suffered you may want to read St. Paul and how he rejoices in his sufferings.
Col 1: 24 "Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up those things that are wanting of the sufferings of Christ, in my flesh, for his body, which is the church:"
So clearly, Jesus isn't the only one who suffers.

("That they may be one...Father")
Luke 2:34-35 (KJV) And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this [child] is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against; (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.
