A few days ago I subscribed to the Mass Readings Explained by Dr. Brant Pitre (link at the end of this post). I’m posting a sample of the video about the Solemnity from that series below. Even this little sample will help you answer those who don’t understand that what the Church teaches about the Blessed Mother is important, and not only important but necessary. To understand (and also to protect) what the Church teaches about Jesus we must understand (and protect) what the Church teaches about the Blessed Virgin Mary.

The Mother of God (often referred to as “Theotokos”), in the council of Ephesus, was a title given to Mary, of course, only after St. Matthew did so on the 1st page of the New Testament in his Gospel.From the description of the video, The Second Reading from Mass for the Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God.

Thank you for visiting and reading. May you have a Happy New Year and may your Solemnity of the Mother of God be blessed! Until next time, whoever and wherever you are, may the Lord bless you and yours, and may His peace be always with you. Amen!
