Can you imagine being a Christian without a powerful devotion to our Blessed Mother?
I know, I know, May 1st is Saint Joseph the Worker Day. But our Blessed Step Father would be a nobody without our Blessed Mother who would be a nobody without our Blessed Lord.
Which "Mary" do you love best in art or popular piety. For me "Our Lady of Perpetual Help" has
special significance for me for an important event when I was in the first grade.
But after I watched Mel Gibson's "The Passion of Christ" I have to say that the manner in which Our Sorrowful Mother was portrayed was for me the most realistic portray of our Blessed Mother in art. She was believable as a human mother of our Divine Lord.
What about you? Kitsch or reality?
