[quote:3lsekxi6]True Mary didnt play a role in the salvation of the world, nor is she God; but to say she didnt play a significant role in Christian History and that she wasnt strong and brave is absurd and insulting.[/quote:3lsekxi6]
I would disagree that Mary did not play a role in the salvation of the world. I would agree that she is not God. However in the same way that we must not only accept the Grace of God into our lives or reject it, (God does not force us to be saved), but we must also cooperate with His grace, Mary was free to accept or reject her participation in God’s plan for the salvation of the World. She conformed perfectly with God’s grace. Any special graces she received from God had to do with that role she did play. It is true that any good we do is spiritually worthless if it is not done in union with Jesus, and His work of salvation.
Yes she is the greatest human model and example for us, and her role has been to point us to her son, Jesus, to lead us to her son Jesus, and to magnify her son Jesus.
