RE:"Mary the mother of Jesus",Since Mary is Jesus’ mother,it must
be concluded that she is also the Mother of God.“Theirs are
the patriarchs, and from them is traced the human ancestry of the Messiah, who
is God over all.”(Romans 9:5).She is rightly called not only

engendered in the womb of Mary was at the same time the eternal God."[John

I, too, love it when I encounter people choosing to Magnify. Not only at Church
but at work, at play. People who respectfully do their best are truly rewarding

I am the opposite of magnifying anything. I like being lazy and do not like
being asked to do stuff. That is probably why I don't have a church calling
and I am loving it.
I'm surprised and then again I'm not at some of things people are
actually proud of.
