Roman Catholicism's Mary and Mormonism's Heavenly Mother...

Error message

On the web site of the Mormon magazine, Meridian, we find this pic accompanying an article titled, "Debunking Myths About Heavenly Mother." Mormons and Roman Catholics both evidence the timeless propensity of all idolaters to make God less scary by tying Him to a woman. It's Mary the Mediatrix for Roman Catholics and the Heavenly Mother for Mormons. And doesn't that picture say it all? What glorious art for those whose hope for the world to come, their "celestial homecoming," is this:

“…when you stand in front of your heavenly parents in those royal courts on high and you look into Her eyes and behold Her countenance, every question you ever had about the role of women in the kingdom will evaporate into the rich celestial air, because at that moment you will see standing directly in front of you, your divine nature and destiny.” - 2010 devotional address at BYU of Provo Elder Glenn L. Pace of the Seventy
