What do you really think about in Church?



So today in church i was trying to pay attention. But the priest said something normal about Mary in the context of Jesus' mother, and then my mind wandered. I grew up knowing (/assuming) Mary was just a vessel, you know? to transport Jesus to earth, deliver him, no genetic makeup etc. so when people call her Jesus' mother, well what do they really mean? in my head:


Biology:
(A) Sperm + Eggs = Baby -----------------------I understand perfectly

Religion:
(B) Holy Spirit -> Mary (vessel, no genetic makeup needed, magical, miracle)-----------------------I understand perfectly


Thought in Church:
(C) Holy Spirit + Mary (with eggs, genetic makeup, as in really his mother)??? = Jesus--------Lighting pls don't strike.


I picked option (B), asked for forgiveness for potential sacrilegious thoughts, & put my mind back on the Mass. As my friends know i'm sometimes prone to "blonde moments" (it's a cute saying but but if any blondes are offended, comment on it, & I promise never to use it again =).


PS don't forget Nordstrom's is currently having their big Anniversary Sale, it started Friday, July 18 and ends Sunday, August 3. Thanks to Dave for both the cartoons. I love his cartoons!

My weekend is going great, hope yours is too.

bisou, Bombchell. (my French is improving lol)

Adam had neither father nor mother!! so of course Jesus is all God. right? I dont feel too stupid anymore because apparently on the internet others have asked & resolved this(eg: on this Yahoo Answers question).lol

& HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY ADA & DERRICK!!!!

    @ your post, but if the conception of christ was immaculate, then there was no sperm and eggs involved, right???

  4. Funny!

    As for your question about the navy/purple dress and the wedding . . . Are you a bridesmaid, or is the color a theme/suggestion? Maybe you should send the bride a swatch and see if she approves? I absolutely adore navy, and think it would be totally classy for a wedding (but it's definitely not going to pass for indigo/lavender, sadly . . .)

  10. Hi, Michelle.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier and commenting. I really appreciate it. : )

    I agree with you about the mind wandering in church. I'm also Catholic, btw.

    I think what matters is that you are there and you are thinking. That's why God gave us brains. : )

  17. Very interesting post. I had never thought of Mary and Jesus from that perspective. I usually don't try to "understand" religious stuff, as it is supposed to be believed in, not explained. At least that's what I've been taught in my Philosophy classes:)

  25. I dig what you are saying but I personally think that God(IAM) doesn't haggle about such things. We couldn't understand it anyway. Yeshua(Jesus) came through Mary to be the Son of Man (Humanly related to us) Emmanuel (God With US). He had to be flesh and blood. The scripture says he was tempted in all things for our sakes.
