Honor thy mother

Kevin O'Brien has written a terrific post on some of the effects his devotion to Mary has had on his life.

I might quibble over "Certainly, no Catholic is required to be 'Marian,'" but his is a message that should be heard. When I first read it, I particularly admired this insight:
But it is only adolescents who are embarrassed by their mothers.
Looking at the post again as I write this, I want to finish with the concluding exhortation:
Accept your mother. Honor her, and in doing so you will more greatly honor Him.

Our faith is real - every single last word of it. And she will help you see that.
