Why Catholics Call Mary Their Mother

When Catholics call Mary their mother, it may seem like they are taking away some of the respect due to Jesus and giving it to Mary. This is far from the case. Fr. Mike points out two reasons why calling Mary our mother can improve our relationship with Christ, and strengthen our faith life.

  1. Loving the people Jesus loves helps you love him more. The more you love Mary the more you love God.
  2. Jesus gave Mary to us as our Mother on the Cross.

“When Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple whom he loved standing near, he said to his mother, ‘Woman, behold, your son!’ Then he said to the disciple, ‘Behold, your mother!’ And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.”

John 19:26-27

Fr. Mike explains the significance of this bible passage, not just for John, but for each of us.
