Our Lady Mary, please forgive those who get stuck in the quicksand of their own finite minds.
God exists in Three Persons (united at all times).
The Trinity is an easy concept to understand, and it is taught in the Bible over and over again.
How beautiful it is, that to redeem the world because of great unfathomable love, the Trinity prepared a girl child, miraculously born without the sin of concupiscence, through her conception in the marriage bed of St. Anne and St. Joachim. The girl child was Mary... in Hebrew "Miriam".
"O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee." (The "Dogma of the Immaculate Conception," believed in the Catholic Church many hundreds of years before the official pronouncement of Pope Pius IX in 1854.)
The Son, through the Father and through the Presence of the Holy Ghost, for the purpose of the Incarnation of Christ, entered the womb of Mary, whose marriage to the much older man Joseph was the relationship of a virginal ward to a protector/guardian.
Mary remained a virgin throughout her life, and she bore no other children. (There were children in the extended family, who were the offspring of St. Anne in her older years, as well as the sisters of St. Anne, Mary's aunts. These were the youngsters related to Jesus, misstranslated in the KJV as being brothers and sisters.)
In Luke, Chapter 2, the "Magnificat Prayer" is the quoted exclamation of Mary during her meeting with her cousin Elizabeth, whose pregnancy was also a miracle, as she and her husband Zechariah were a couple in their senior years. Elizabeth would give birth to a boy child, who grew up to be John the Baptist.
In the "Magnificat Prayer", Mary expresses her love for God:
"My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my saviour, who respected the humility of his handmaiden; for henceforth all generations shall call me blessed!"
Mary recognizes that God is her saviour, because she knows God is her Creator, the Giver of all blessing, and that salvation is only through Him. As a daughter of Abraham, of the lineage of King David herself (as even many leading Protestant scholars have confirmed), she continues her hymn of praise:
"For He who is mighty has done great things to me, and Holy is His Name!"
There should be no reluctance to call Mary the Mother of God. The Infant Child Jesus came into this world supernaturally and painlessly through her womb, once filled by the Holy Spirit. He lay in her arms in the manger. He was nourished at her breast.
Through 15 centuries, Christians loved Mary and prayed for her intercession for their needs, knowing that her wonderful life continues in Heaven, where she rules as Queen of the Angels.
As an additional gift from God, Mary did not die, nor was she buried. She experienced The Assumption Into Heaven of her physical body.
Some years ago, I found it very educational to read the lives of Martin Luther and the other Reformers who left us with a Protestant theology which is so distorted. You will be surprised to find how greatly they disagreed with each other on basic points, how they betrayed one another, and succumbed to destructive behaviours and decisions.
I am a Bible college graduate of the Assemblies of God, now 60 years of age, and I have repented for my blindness and my past prejudices against the Roman Catholic Church. I pray God will forgive all the false teachers of America and Canada.
However, it is important to understand that the modern Catholic Church in Rome WAS TAKEN OVER BY COMMUNISTS, SATANISTS, AND FREEMASONS after World War II.
There is no true Catholic Church today. But there are true Catholics, who follow the old paths.
P.S. I believe this thread is also in error, as the Rosary was given by an apparition of Our Lady of the Rosasy, in the 13th century, to St. Dominic - in the form of 150 prayers... to correspond to the 150 Psalms in the Old Testament...
There are Three Decades:
The Joyful Mysteries
The Sorrowful Mysteries
The Glorious Mysteries
.... and each Mystery/Decade has 50 prayer (10 x 5) = 50
50 x 3 = 150
The Number 5 does not represent a Pentagram Rosary.
The OP is mistaken, but well-meaning, I am sure.
