Protestants on Our Lady
Fr Toles quotes the inverse of why I like Christmas: for about a month before, the Protestants forget they don’t like us and put up statues of her and Jesus and sing in Latin. They come home in a way.
As one theologian put it … “we drag Mary out at Christmas and then pack her safely back in the crèche box for the rest of the year.”

The more Protestant churches during the Reformation basically demonized her… and during the 16th century statues of her were burned or hacked to pieces after they had been paraded through brothels... but why?
Because the ‘Reformation’ was evil.

Many in those heresies ended up apostate, either the relatively rare formal kind (Unitarians, Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Oneness Pentecostals) or the common de facto kind in the mainline. They’re always a vote away from making it official and I think it will be a soft, stealth kind where they won’t tell Grandma she can’t believe in Jesus any more but will downgrade their paper orthodoxy to just an option, making official their unofficial mode for a few hundred years.

Not a coincidence.
He who does not love the Mother of God does not love God.
Fr Anastassy
