“The Gospel does not tell us anything: if she spoke a word or not … She was silent, but in her heart, how many things told the Lord! ‘You, that day, this and the other that we read, you had told me that he would be great, you had told me that you would have given him the throne of David, his forefather, that he would have reigned forever and now I see him there!’ Our Lady was human! And perhaps she even had the desire to say: ‘Lies! I was deceived!’ ”
P.S.: when Francis invokes Blessed John Paul II in the link,
it has since been discovered the former pontiff never said
anything close to what the current Bishop of Rome claims.
“Those who undertake this holy slavery should have a special devotion to the great mystery of the Incarnation of the Word. Indeed, the Incarnation is the mystery proper to this practice, insomuch as it is a devotion inspired by the Holy Ghost:
-- First, to honor and imitate the ineffable dependence that God the Son was pleased to have on Mary, for His Father’s glory and our salvation. This dependence appears in a particular way in this mystery, where Our Lord Jesus Christ is a captive and a slave in the bosom of the Most Holy Virgin, and depends on her for all things.
-- Second, to thank God for the incomparable graces He has given Mary, and particularly for having chosen her to be His most worthy Mother, the choice which was made in this mystery.”
“Time does not permit me to explain here the greatness and grandeurs of the mystery of Jesus living in Mary; in other words, the Incarnation of the Word. I will content myself to say these few words. We have here the first mystery of Jesus Christ – the most hidden, the most exalted, and the least known. It is in this mystery that Jesus, in concert with Mary, has chosen all the elect. For this reason, her womb is called by the Saints 'aula sacramentorum,' the room of the secrets of God. From this mystery, He has wrought all the subsequent mysteries of His life … . Hence, this mystery is the summation of all mysteries and contains the will and grace of all. Finally, this mystery is the Throne of the mercy, the liberality, and the glory of God.”

We thought this appropriate to review on the Feast of the Annunciation 2014. We wil let the individual reader decide which quote is right and which is more than wrong.
In fact, if one reads how the "gay" author of this blasphemous work thinks about Mary, it seems eerily similar:
"I felt that I was Mary. In other words, I was her voice, I was her eyes, I was her soul, I was her consciousness watching the thing happening and wondering what to do and thinking about it years later, 'Did I do anything right? Was ... there anything more I could have done?' and then going into the next paragraph, describing in the next paragraph exactly what she saw. For example, I tried to think very precisely and exactly, 'If you're wearing a crown of thorns ... ,' and I'd never thought about it before, of course. She sees that he puts his hands up to try and pull the thorns out and by doing so manages to seal them further into the skin, and she's watching him doing that, and she's watching him doing that thinking, 'Stop. No, no, you're actually not helping. ... '
Yeah, well, She probably thought that because, hey, if She thought She was "decieved" at the Foot of the Cross, what do you expect Her to think years later, right?
