Tells Brother Priests to Turn to Her as Their Mother
March 29, 2018
Note from Pastor Kevin Lea: The Bible teaches us that Jesus is to be our priest (Psalm 110 with the book of Hebrews), that our devotion is to be toward the Son (Psalm 2 and John 14:6) and not his mother (Acts – Revelation). The Pope is leading a billion deceived Catholics into the same Queen of Heaven idol worship that ended up bringing the judgment of God upon the Jewish people (Jeremiah 7 and 44).

Mary, with her ‘yes’ to welcoming her Son into the world, is the one who brought us close to Jesus forever, Pope Francis underscored during the Chrism Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica this Holy Thursday morning [day before Good Friday].
Encouraging his brother priests to join him in turning to Mary, “Mother of priests,” he noted, they can call upon her as “Our Lady of Closeness.”

Pope Francis concluded, saying: “Let us ask Mary, ‘Our Lady of Closeness’ to bring us closer to one another, and, when we need to tell our people to ‘do everything Jesus tells them,’ to speak with one tone of voice, so that in the diversity of our opinions, her maternal closeness may become present. For she is the one who, by her ‘yes’, has brought us close to Jesus forever.”
