Seek God through his Mother, Pope encourages faithful

.- During his Sunday homily in Sardinia, the Pope explained how we should seek Christ through the intercession of our Blessed Mother, whose life was an example of faithful prayer and trust in God.

“Let us not grow tired of knocking at God’s door,” he told crowds Sept. 22 in Cagliari, Sardinia. “Let us go to the heart of God through Mary, our whole life, every day, knocking at the door of God’s heart!”
“Mary prays – prays together with the community of disciples, and teaches us to have full faith in God, in his mercy. This is the power of prayer!” he told the faithful.

The Pope recounted how Mary stood with the “beloved disciple” John at the foot of the Cross.
Jesus entrusted them to one another, the Pope said, and in that moment, “we are all there in John.”
It is “loving gaze of Jesus that entrusts us to the maternal custody of his Mother.”

However, her time at the foot of the Cross was not the first time Mary experienced the Divine “loving gaze” Pope Francis explained.

“Mary will have remembered another gaze of love, when she was a young woman, the gaze of God the Father, that saw her humility, her littleness.”

Mary’s relationship with God serves as a model for every Christian.

She “teaches us that God does not abandon us, he can do great things even with our weakness,” explained Pope Francis. “Let us have faith in Him! Let us knock at the door of his heart!”

With the love she has received from God, Mary turns to love her children that Jesus put in her care before he died on the Cross.

In the tender gaze of Mary, said the Pontiff, we find “reflection of the gaze of the Father, which has made her the Mother of God, and the gaze of the Son from the Cross, that has made her our Mother.”

“And with that look today Mary is watching us. We need her tender gaze, her maternal gaze that knows us better than anyone else, her gaze full of compassion and care.”

As the Pope preached, the traditional Sardinian statue of Our Lady of Bonaria stood nearby.
“Bonaria” means “good air” or “fair wind.” In Spanish, it is “Buenos Aires,” the name of Pope Francis’ hometown.

It is said that the Argentinian city received its name from a Sardinian sailor who arrived with early explorers in 1536. He insisted upon naming the land after his ancestral patroness.

After Mass, the Holy Father greeted local authorities as well as the ill and infirmed who had been brought to the cathedral to meet him. He blessed those who were suffering and prayed with those who sought healing.
Pope Francis stopped to greet a large group of nuns in various habits that welcomed him enthusiastically.
He thanked them for their “sustaining” lives of sacrifice and asked for their prayers.

He then continued on to meet with local bishops before returning to the cathedral to speak to the poor and prisoners.

Pope tries to make “Mother of God” equal to her son

September 28, 2013
The Roman Catholics have tried their best to make their “blessed Mother” equal to the Son of God.
The wooden idol named “Lady of Sorrows” waits with seven swords in her hearts, for those who have been told to adore her, and pray in her name.
The devil is often in the details.  While the Bible says a spiritual sword was going to pierce the soul of Jewish virgin Miriam, some Vatican scholars claim a physical sword pierced her heart. Not only one, but seven swords.
Here are one more picture:
The Queen of Heaven is presented as equal to her son. She is suppose to come back, the same way she left, to save us.
This is what a Catholic blogger writes about the Pope’s “Lady of Sorrows”:
This excerpt from a sermon by St. Bernard of Clairvaux (Sermo in dom. infra oct. Assumptionis, 14-15: Opera omnia, Edit. Cisterc. 5 [1968}, 273-274) is used in the Roman Office of Readings for the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows on September 15. It speaks of the martyrdom of the Virgin at the foot of the cross--her heart is pierced by a sword as Simeon predicted as her Son's body is pierced by nails and spear.

There is not only private bloggers who distribute this kind of blasphemy. This is what the Roman Catholic online magazine "Catholic Culture" writes:
 This feast is dedicated to the spiritual martyrdom of Mary, Mother of God, and her compassion with the sufferings of her Divine Son, Jesus. In her suffering as co-redeemer, she reminds us of the tremendous evil of sin and shows us the way of true repentance. May the numerous tears of the Mother of God be conducive to our salvation; with which tears Thou, O God, art able to wash away the sins of the whole world.
 As Mary stood at the foot of the Cross on which Jesus hung, the sword of sorrow Simeon had foretold pierced her soul. Below are the seven sorrows of Mary:

Lets us read what the infallible Word of God explains to mankind:
 Luke 2:35
so that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your own soul too.”
The issue is if the Jewish mother of Jesus was a human being, a sinner just like us.  Did this Jewess need to be saved by her Son?
The only correct answer is YES.
The above verse confirms that Miriam of Nazareth was eventually saved, when the Holy Spirit came like a sword, and pierced her soul. But most likely not at the cross of Calvary Hill. But rather in the Upper Room, when the Holy Spirit came with power and convictions.
Miriam must have felt sorrow and pity standing next to the cross. She is a mother, who felt she was about to loose her son.
But such tears do not save anyone.  The sword of the Spirit of God brings tears based on a convictions about personal sins, and rebellion against God. Jesus died on the cross for the sins of Miriam too.
The sword of the Holy Spirit will lead us into repentance. Just like Jewish Miriam was lead into repentance and salvation by her Son.
A fake woman presented by the Pope as Jewish Miriam, the mother of Jesus.
All men have sinned, and fallen short of the glory of God. All human beings needs to be saved, without failure.
Since the Roman Catholic Church deny that “Catholic Mary” was a sinner, the Vatican copycat can not have been a human.
And obviously claimed to be a deity her self, she did not need to be saved by her own Son.
The Queen of Heaven is at best fiction.
But more likely she is a powerful demon, who holds tens of millions of Roman Catholics in bondage to idolatry and falsehood presented as “holiness”.
The second aspect, is that sinless “Catholic Mary” is presented as co-matrix. A co-redeemer with her sinless Son.
It is therefor important for the Vatican to portray her as some kind of a martyr standing on Calvary Hill, next to her son.
As Jesus died there, so did she we are told.  At least her heart must have been crushed, for the forgiveness of sins of the World. Both mother and son martyred.
This is blasphemy, and a set of damnable lies. It makes the savior Yeshua the Messiah not the singular name for salvation. But men must rather accept a dual pagan deity, who together appear as the saviors in plural.
Within the Roman Catholic religion, God of the Bible is blasphemed every day.
For all who fall into this religious society of God-mockers, and present all its falsehood as truth, there is a simple message:  It is to late to regret all the sins you called acts of “holiness” the day you find your self in Hell.
You must repent today from this falsehood. God is Holy. His judgment will be fair and just.
 2 Corinthians 11:4
For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.
Paul warned us about false teachers, who would present us with a “different Jesus”.  A copy cat invented in the bottomless pit. This is one of the classical examples.
