  1. Mary was a model to Christian’s in that she was humble and showed humility although she was highly honored to be the mother of Jesus, As such, she is to be honored but not worshipped as some do. Only Gid is to be worshipped.

  2. Reblogged this on The Authentic Jesus ( The Transforming Jesus) and commented:
    “One cannot always tell what it is that keeps us shut in, confines us,
    seems to bury us, but still one feels certain barriers, certain gates,
    certain walls. is all this imagination, fantasy?”
