To some who are not Catholic, one of the biggest misunderstandings about the Catholic faith is the Church’s four Marian dogmas (that Mary is theotokos, or the mother of God; the Immaculate Conception; the Virgin Birth; the
Assumption). For those who take the time to explore and reflect, it is clear that we believe these things about Mary because the Catholic Church takes the full divinity and humanity of Jesus so seriously.
It’s never about Mary (she’s the one who said to the attendants at the wedding at Cana, “Do whatever he tells you”). Christian Faith is all about Jesus, and the only way the Son of God became Man was through the Virgin Mary!
