It is a conditioned reaction, generated by repetition from the beginning of their faith, to stigmatize the supposed opponent.
Trying to explain otherwise is fruitless; don’t even try it because you’re going to end up exasperated.
But Mary, as always, comes to our aid.
If not, look at the testimony that begins when an evangelical child was 9 years old.
This story is one more example of how Mary comes looking for us to lead us to Jesus.
Together, they slowly heal us, instruct us, purify us, guide us.
But there are cases even stronger humanly.
Like that of an Ecuadorian priest who was conceived for rape and years later confessed to his biological father.
A six-year-old Protestant boy had often heard his fellow Catholics say the Hail Mary.
He liked it so much that he copied it, memorized it, and prayed it every day.
“Look, Mommy, what a beautiful prayer,” he said to his mother one day.
“Never say it again” replied the mother.
“It is a superstitious prayer of Catholics who worship idols and think that Mary is a goddess.
After all, She is a woman like any other.
Come on, take this Bible and read it.
It contains everything we must do. “
From that day on, the little boy stopped saying his daily Hail Mary and spent more time reading the Bible.
HE FOUND MARY IN THE GOSPEL
One day, reading the Gospel, he saw the passage about the Annunciation of the Angel to the Virgin.
Overjoyed, the boy ran to his mother and said:
” Mommy, I found the Hail Mary in the Bible that says: ‘Full of grace, the Lord is with you, blessed are you among women . ‘
Why do you call a superstitious prayer? ” . She did not answer.
On another occasion, he found the scene of Elizabeth’s salutation to the Virgin Mary and the beautiful canticle of the Magnificat , in which Mary announced: “from now on all generations will call me blessed.”
He not says anything to his mother and began to pray the Hail Mary every day again, as it used to do.
I felt the pleasure to say those beautiful words to the Mother of Jesus, our Savior.
PUBLICLY CLAIMS MARÍA
When she was fourteen years old, one day she heard her family arguing about Our Lady.
They all said that Maria was an ordinary woman. The boy, after hearing their erroneous reasoning, could not bear it any longer and, full of indignation, he interrupted them saying:
“ Mary is not like any other son of Adam, stained with sin. No! The Angel called her FULL OF GRACE AND BLESSED AMONG WOMEN.
Mary is the Mother of Jesus and consequently the Mother of God.
There is no greater dignity to which a creature can aspire.
The Gospel says that all generations will call her blessed, while you try to despise her and make her less.
Their spirit is not the spirit of the Gospel or the Bible that they proclaim is the foundation of the Christian religion.
THE MARIAN CONFESSION WAS DIVISIVE
The impression that the boy’s words made on his mother was so deep that she often cried inconsolably:
Oh God, I’m afraid this son of mine will one day join the Catholic religion, the religion of the Popes!
And indeed, a short time later, son was convinced that the Catholic religion was the only authentic one.
He hugged her and became one of its most ardent apostles.
And a few years after his conversion, the protagonist of our story met his already married sister.
He wanted to greet her and hug her, but she rejected him and said indignantly:
You have no idea how much I love my children.
If anyone wanted to become a Catholic, he would first bury a dagger in his heart that would allow him to embrace the religion of the Popes.
His anger and temper were as furious as St. Paul’s before his conversion.
YOUR SISTER DISCOVERES THE CATHOLIC FAITH IN THE MIDST OF THE TRIBULATION
However, his sister would soon change her way of being , as happened to Saint Paul on his way to Damascus.
It happened that one of his sons fell seriously ill.
The doctors did not give hopes for his brother recuperación.Tan soon learned, he searched the hospital and spoke fondly, saying:
“ Dear sister, you naturally wish for your son to heal.
Very well, then do what I am going to ask you.
Let’s pray a Hail Mary together and promise God that if your child regains health, you will seriously study Catholic doctrine.
And if you come to the conclusion that Catholicism is the only true religion, you embrace you no matter the sacrifices this will entail. “
His sister was initially reluctant, but since she wanted her son to recover, she accepted her brother’s proposal and prayed a Hail Mary with him.
The next day, her son was completely cured.
The mother kept her promise and began to study Catholic doctrine.
After intense preparation, she received Baptism in the Catholic Church along with her entire family.
How she thanked her brother for being an apostle to her.
THE EVANGELICAL CHILD BECAME A PRIEST
This story was related by Father Francis Tuckwell in one of his homilies.
Brothers, he ended up saying , the Protestant boy who became a Catholic and converted his sister to Catholicism, dedicated his entire life to serving God, he is the priest who speaks to you.
How much I owe to the Blessed Virgin, Our Lady!
You too, my dear brothers, dedicate yourselves completely to serving Our Lady and do not let a single day go by without saying the beautiful Hail Mary prayer as well as your rosary.
Ask Her to enlighten the minds of Protestants who are separated from the true Church of Christ founded on the Rock (Peter) and against whom ‘the gates of hell will never prevail’.
