I too have struggled with Mary as my sister. I have always thought the title of mother showed her more respect and honor, something she truly deserves. Once again St Augustin has taught me a very important lesson, and how could I not listen to the voice of my favorite saint. I can now see that calling Mary my sister as well as my mother shows her no sign of disrespect but rather enhances her in my eyes. Thank you Julie for pointing out this teaching from St Augustin,
Also on another note, there has now been a second miracle declared for John Henry Cardinal Newman, another great writer and convert. Looks like his cause for cannonization just got a shot in the arm. I look forward to the day when he is declared a saint.
Now if I live long enough to see Bishop Fulton Sheen and G K Chesterson join the ranks as well I will be a very happy man.
