Favorite method of honoring Mary mother of Jesus is praying the Holy Rosary.
The Roman Catholic Rosary has a long history of being a very powerful force. This is so because it is the best method of honoring Mary.
Bear in mind that Mary in her humility does not need to be honored but rather through the Rosary she sends graces to her children because she loves them.
Mary wants her children to pray the Rosary because it produces the fruits of holiness in those devoted to it.
The Rosary Promises illustrate the good things the Rosary does for individual souls.
Mary is the perfect reflection of Jesus and studying their lives will enable you to transform your soul to reflect theirs.
Knowing that Jesus would deny His mother nothing and understanding their relationship bears forth the conclusion that you must go to Jesus through Mary.
This may be a hard pill to swallow, but as you become familiar with the lives of Jesus and Mary by meditating on the Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful and Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary you will soon discover the simplicity and elegance of their relationship with each other and their relationship with you.
For a brief illustration of this relationship look no further than the gospel account of the wedding feast at Cana. Below is an excerpt from that gospel...
Mary approached Jesus and said to Him, "They have no wine."
Jesus replied to Mary, "Woman, what is that to me and to thee? my hour is not yet come."
Mary inturn said to the waiters, "Whatsoever he shall say to you, do ye."
Some have mistaken this Bible account as Jesus rebuking His mother.
When considering the whole context you will see much to the contrary is true.
Mary knows Jesus will perform this miracle at her request. She tells the servants to do as He tells them.
By Honoring Mary
She Will Help You
In All Your Needs...
"Because he hath regarded the humility of his handmaid;
for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed."
A long devotion to Mary has developed over the course of many centuries because of the relationship between Mary and Jesus and the results people see when they ask for things through Mary.
This devotion of honoring Mary has spread not only over many centuries but also among many different cultures.
The devotion to Mary by use of the Catholic Rosary prayers concludes that there is a timeless and authentic Catholic culture that is still very much alive.
