  • The Vindication of the Mother of God

    At Christmas time, the Virgin Mary gets a bit of attention in the wider culture. A woman gives birth in difficult circumstances: Mother, baby, ox and ass, the manger. It’s a very touching scene. She quickly fades from the scene however, with some five centuries of culture desperately afraid that she will get too much attention. In that vein, she is pretty much absent from Easter. We have eggs, chocolate, bunny rabbits, and the resurrection of Christ (along with new dresses and such), but Mary has no place in our culture’s Easter imagination. Some of this is undoubtedly the result...

    Former President Donald Trump’s niece Mary Trump said Sunday on MSNBC’s “Alex Witt Reports” that her uncle has no idea “what it feels like to love somebody or to be loved.” Referencing remarks the former president made at a rally, Witt asked, “So what did you make of listening to your uncle say that if he could, he would have done more to make sure that National Guard troops were deployed on January 6. What was your reaction to that?”

    Ancient Faith Ministries ^ | December 14, 2021 | Fr. Stephen Freeman
    In my childhood, it was not unusual to hear someone ask, “Who are your people?” It was a semi-polite, Southernism designed to elicit essential information about a person’s social background. The assumption was that you, at best, could only be an example of your “people.” It ignored the common individualism of the wider culture, preferring the more family or clan-centered existence of an older time. It was possible to be “good people” who had fallen on hard times, just as it was possible to be “bad people” who were flourishing. Good people were always to be preferred. I am aware...

    Some Facts About Mary & Joseph's Journey to BethlehemWe do not know every detail of Mary and Joseph's journey to Bethlehem. We do know some of the facts as recorded in the New Testament. We know that Mary and Joseph were human beings with thoughts and feelings. We can also glean from ancient Jewish Mishnah's, and secular historical sources some information to help us understand some pertinent information not included in Scriptures about the time. Here are some of the particulars involved that may have been a factor in the events leading up to the birth of our Savior.When Caesar...

    How Protestants’ Assault on Mary Dismantled Society Timothy Flanders | February 11, 2020 Since the Fall of Man, men and women have been locked in a contest of power. Instead of the order of humility and charity created by God, Adam and Eve chose pride and rebellion against God and each other. Pride produces a contest of power because pride cannot be satisfied unless it obtains more power by the accomplishment of its own will. This is Satan’s non serviam. Thus, during the period before Christ, the Prophet cries out, O Lord set a Lawgiver over them, that the heathen...

    Donald Trump’s niece asked a state court on Thursday to throw out the former president’s $100 million lawsuit against her and the New York Times. Mary Trump’s attorneys filed a motion to dismiss Trump’s lawsuit that stemmed from explosive news articles about his taxes and finances. “This baseless case should be dismissed because it is a frivolous attempt to punish Mary Trump and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists for publishing truthful information of great public concern about former President Trump,” Theodore J. Boutrous, Jr., a partner with law firm Gibson Dunn, said. “Mr. Trump has a long history of filing lawsuits simply...

    Mary Trump is ripping Donald Trump, Jr. in a new interview, just the latest example of her insulting another member of her famous family. Appearing on this week’s episode of the “UnPresidented” podcast, Trump, a psychologist who has written a highly-critical book about former President Donald Trump, referred to her cousin Donald Trump Jr. as “weak” and “the stupidest one” in her family. “Donnie is a deeply unintelligent person. I’ve been asked this, who’s the stupidest one, and it’s him,” Mary Trump said.

    Mary Trump, former President Trump's niece, said Thursday that she doesn’t see her cousins connecting with the GOP should they decide to run for office. In an interview on CNN’s “New Day,” Mary Trump said former White House adviser Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. don't have the kind of charisma as her uncle. “I don't see anybody else at the top of the Republican Party who has the same kind of sway with other, with their voters, and it's certainly not, certainly not my cousins,” Mary Trump said.

    Former President Donald Trump’s niece, Mary Trump, said Monday on ABC’s “The View” that the former president proved “using racism as a platform” could be successful. When asked why her uncle has not supported the vaccine more, Trump said, “Because he is not a generous, kind, empathetic and passionate human being. He likes it this way. He likes the division. He likes the chaos. He’s been doing this since 2015. Well, longer, but on the national stage, he’s been doing this since 2015. People seem not to understand not only did he have the best medical treatment money could buy...

    And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come. His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it. And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins...

    This won't change your opinion one whit, but you will be placed in the position of disavowing a lie, or supporting it. Eliza Doolittle's father, Stanley Holloway, says to Rex Harrison, "You Worship". He isn't deifying him, it's short for "your worthyship". “I thee worship” means the husband honors the wife; he's not making her a goddess. Why do Catholics worship the Virgin Mary? It's not that they give her the Adoration solely due to God, called Latria. They give the saints Dulia, veneration--there's a stained-glass window in Westminster Presbyterian by the California State Capital, of John Calvin--he's venerated, he's...

    During the first 1,500 years of Christianity, Mary was regarded as the peer of Enoch, Elijah and, according to a Jewish targum (a biblical commentary), Moses, by God taking her bodily up into heaven. (Orthodox and Catholics allow that she may have just newly died during the Assumption, calling her death “falling asleep”.) In two-thirds of the Christian tradition, across the Orthodox and Catholic world, Mary is regarded as having been specially privileged, called Theotokos, God-bearer. In order that the birth of Jesus would be in a fitting vessel, Catholics believe Mary was also the peer of Eve prior to...

    Most of my early Church memories center around Sunday School (I think that we did not “stay for preaching” very often). The small Baptist church that we attended was about a mile from our house and was conveniently connected by a railroad track, generally inactive on Sundays. My older brother and I often walked along the track on Sunday mornings when the weather was pleasant. The earliest Bible verses I can recall were learned in those classrooms. One of those was Psalm 122:1: “I was glad when they said unto me, ‘Let us go into the House of the Lord.’”...

    We Protestants certainly have a problem when it comes to Mary–so allergic are we to any sign of Marian devotion that we flip out and run the other way at any sign of it, including thoroughly orthodox phrases like “Mother of God” and “Hail Mary, full of grace.” The first phrase is of course part of the touchstone of orthodoxy the Definition of Chalcedon, and is the proper translation of Theotokos–the preferred Protestant version (for those who even bother to recite it) is “God-bearer,” ... To call Mary the “Mother of God” was a truth that many Christians actually gave...

    The scientific word is “microchimerism”. It is the transfer of cells from the baby’s body into the mother’s body and the transfer of cells of the mother’s body in the baby’s body. These cells of the baby remain in the mothers’ body after birth. Very interesting indeed when considering the relationship between Jesus and his mother Mary. The microchimerism website says, “Microchimerism is the harboring of small numbers of cells that originated in a genetically different individual. During pregnancy some cells traffic from the mother to the fetus and from the fetus to the mother. Surprisingly, a small number of...
