mary

Mary, the mother of Jesus in Christianity, is known by many different titles (Blessed Mother, ****** Mary, Mother of God, Our Lady, Holy ******), epithets (Star of the Sea, Queen of Heaven, Cause of Our Joy), invocations (Panagia, Mother of Mercy, God-bearer Theotokos), and several names associated with places (Our Lady of Loreto, Our Lady of Fátima).

All of these descriptives refer to the same woman named Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ (in the New Testament). They are used differently by Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, and some Anglicans. (Note: Mary Magdalene, Mary of Clopas, and Mary Salome are different women.)
Some descriptives of Mary are properly titles, dogmatic in nature, while some are invocations. Other descriptives are poetic or allegorical or have lesser or no canonical status, but form part of popular piety, with varying degrees of acceptance by Church authorities. Another class of titles refer to depictions of Mary in Catholic Marian art and in art generally. A rich range of Marian titles also are used in musical settings of pieces dedicated to her.

    Trivia What is correct: "Sorry Mary, you were wrong" or "Sorry, Mary you were wrong"?

    Neither sentence is correct. It should be: “Sorry, Mary, you were wrong.” It is not the location of the comma that should be of interest. The noun, “Mary,” is being used in the vocative case, and, therefore, should be preceded and followed by a comma.

    Why Do Catholics Pray To Mary?

    Catholic ako and until now hindi ko pa rin ito maintindihan. Why pray to Mary when I can directly pray to God who is omnipotent while Mary is just human? Edit: Did a bit of research, pray to God and to Jesus only. 1 Timothy 2:5 ESV For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God...
