There’s an old saying: Imitation is the sincerest form of Flattery. It shows that you like and admire that person and want to be like him or her. In the case of the Blessed Mother, imitating her is our highest calling. We can do no better than to be like Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and the holiest person that ever lived.
As a matter of fact, the very worst thing about Mary is that so many of our Christian brethren do not appreciate her. They love Jesus but ignore his mother. That is so sad because Mary has so much to offer us.
