The great evangelist Billy Graham once famously said, “We evangelical Christians do not give Mary her proper due.”
What is the role of St. Mary in the church today? What should it be? Should I pray to her? Is that even allowed? Or is she no different than anyone else – just a historical figure who played an important role 2000 years ago, but that’s pretty much it. What is the Virgin Mary’s “proper due”?
That’s the topic for the latest installment in the Ancient Faith in a Modern World series. I did my best to answer those questions and a few more, but I must confess: I had a little help from a special guest who joined us for a special cameo appearance at The Well – his first appearance there but probably not his last.
