This is in reference to the post of Whoknows,
I feel that sincerely or you didnt understand the sense of the words attributed to the Holy Virgin Mary, mother of our saviour, or you are
definitively extremly wrongly informed about the scriptures.
When St. Mary is showing us her love and her interest in our salvation is not in any way contradicting the fact that Christ is our Great Priest in the
presence of God Father, to the contrary is following precisely his very last will before to die that she is taking care of the children she adopted
in the calvary through a simbolic action that took place with St John, the youngest disciple that was at that time a mere adolescent.
The Bible clearly says in The Gospel according with St John:
Aramaic Bible in Plain English (©2010)
But Yeshua saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing and he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son.”
He said to that disciple, “Behold, your mother.” And from that hour that disciple received her to himself.
In that precise moment the Lord states that his mother in this earth was going to adopt his followers as her own sons and they must respect her as
their own mother.
The Devotion to the Virgin is not at all antibiblical as you state, is solidly founded in the respect to the will of Christ. St Mary lived the rest
of her life in this world not with any of her relatives but with St John, in signal of how important was that commandment of Christ for her.
To say that this devotion is Blasphemy is something not only extremly bold, and by the way ignorant, but decisively heretic.
As far as I know it was not Christ the one that said in any part of his public life that her mother would not have any role at all to do in the
salvation of the humanity, after all she was the instrument through which God sent his only son to this world, but it was perhaps the personal opinion
of some other well known heretic of the past like John Calvin who supported such a claim.

It is interesting to remark that even Martin Luther, that also unfortunately has the terrible responsibility to have created one of the worst schisms
of the History, dividing the Chirtendom until our days, was respectul of the three essential attributes of the Holy Virgin St Mary:
- Her immaculate conception, she was conceived without original sin.
- Her so important lovely role of Mediatrix in between Humanity and Christ.
- Her perpetual Virginity, in respect to her original vows as a Virgin of Zion, incharged of the cult to God in the great temple of Jerusalem.

This in spite of the ideas some sects of our time that like to be known as Lutherans believe or not about the Mother of God.
It is important to recall that after Christ ascended to Heaven he left back for many years in this world his own mother, so it is not mere speculation
to realize how important might be the role of St Mary in the primitive Christian church.
She was present in the election of St Mathias as the replacement of Judas Iscariot, as well as in Pentecostes, when the Holy spirit was sent to the
apostles, and she is the only woman mentioned by her name in the scripture account of that event.
Even St John himself in one of his letters clearly states that she was considered even at that time the mother of the church:
2 John 1:1
Worldwide English (New Testament) (WE)
1 From the leader of the church people. I send greetings to the lady whom God has chosen, and to her children. I love you all because you have the
truth about Christ. I am not the only one who loves you. All those who know the truth, love you also.
Again becareful since the so important motherhood of St Mary over the Church is one of the pillars of the authentic Christian Theology, who ever
denies that is falling in grave Heretics and can be guilty of blasphemy, depending of who is responsible or how he or she was taught on that evident
biased interpretation of the Holy scriptures.
