Catherine Mendenhall-Baugh poses the questions: Isn’t there such a thing as lying to someone to protect them rather than hurting them with the truth. Isn’t it ok to tell a compassionate lie? Or can we be truthful in everything we do and everything we say?
Catherine Mendenhall-Baugh reminds us that Jesus’ mother, Mary is not just a “Catholic obsession.” She is universal because of her gift to mankind. She taught the role of motherhood by her example. She taught us how to say “Thy will be done” or “I got this, Lord.” Mostly she gave us her Son, Jesus.
Catherine Mendenhall-Baugh reminds us that Jesus is here with you daily; he’s not visiting. He’s joining us at Mass. He’s sitting with us while we listen to the sermon. He’s standing in the garden among the flowers. Essentially, He’s always with us.
