“One said to Him, ‘Look, your mother and your brothers are standing outside, seeking to speak with you.’ But He answered and said to the one who told Him, ‘Who is My mother and who are my brothers?’ And He stretched out His hand toward His disciples and said, ‘Here are my mother and my brothers! For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother'” (Matthew 12:47-50).
I’m so sorry, Catholic friends. But Scripture will not allow you to worship Mary.
There is no place for Mariolatry, as it is known, in the life of Jesus’ disciples.
We will give her the honor Scripture gives her. We have no trouble calling her blessed, for who would not be blessed by being chosen to bear God’s Son into the world. But no, she is not “the mother of God.” Any way you slice it, the only way you can make Scripture justify worship of Mary is to ignore everything but a few selected verses.
A woman called out of the crowd to Jesus, “Blessed is the womb that bore you! And blessed are the breasts that nursed you!” Jesus’ answer is significant. “More than that, blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it!” (Luke 11:27-28).
Jesus would not allow people to make of Mary more than she was.
