MARY: Error versus Truth

The Catholic Church Teaches (ERROR)

9. We should entrust ourselves to Mary, surrendering “‘the hour of our death’ wholly to her care” [RC Catechism 2677].

2677 Holy Mary, Mother of God: With Elizabeth we marvel, "and why is this granted me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?"36 Because she gives us Jesus, her son, Mary is Mother of God and our mother; we can entrust all our cares and petitions to her: she prays for us as she prayed for herself: "Let it be to me according to your word."37 By entrusting ourselves to her prayer, we abandon ourselves to the will of God together with her: "Thy will be done."

Pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death: By asking Mary to pray for us, we acknowledge ourselves to be poor sinners and we address ourselves to the "Mother of Mercy," the All-Holy One. We give ourselves over to her now, in the Today of our lives. and our trust broadens further, already at the present moment, to surrender "the hour of our death" wholly to her care. May she be there as she was at her son’s death on the cross. May she welcome us as our mother at the hour of our passing38 to lead us to her son, Jesus, in paradise.

36 Lk 1:43.
37 Lk 1:38.
38 Cf. Jn 19:27.

The Bible Teaches (TRUTH)

We should entrust ourselves to the Lord Jesus, surrendering the hour of our death wholly to His care (Romans 10:13; Acts 4:12).

13  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. ~ Romans 10:13

12  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. ~ Act 4:12

Soli Deo Gloria
