016. Following Mary to Jesus

016. Following Mary to Jesus

Join us as we talk about a holy mother who inspires us: Mary, the mother of Jesus. While we both honor her (not worship), we hold different perspectives on how we relate to Mary and her significance in our spiritual journey!

Snippet from the Show: "I think her whole role is to show us Christ, to bring us to her son. She turns us to Jesus, and she leads us to the cross, because it is on the cross that we find everything." -Shelly


  • “You can never praise or honor Mary without Mary’s praising and honoring God with you.” – St. Louis de Montfort
  • “She’s strong against evil, but with an inner peace and tenderness that she transmits to us.” Fr. Jacques Philippe (Real Mercy: Mary, Forgivness, and Trust)
  • “Blessed Mary, Mother of God, intercede for me with your Son. I long to say Yes but I am afraid of what that means. Guide me with your mother’s hand so that I may know that all will be well.” – Lisa (Mary’s Yes to God)
