Mary's Command for Catholics

Mary's Command

In the gospel of Saint John, we read of the marriage feast at Cana. Here Mary emphasizes the importance of Jesus and the words that He speaks.

Realizing that the wine was gone, and that she herself could not do anything, she tells Jesus, the only One who could do something. Mary then gives the servants a command one that we all should consider. "His mother said to the servants, "do whatsoever He tells you." (John 2:5)

This is the only recording in the Bible where Mary gives a command, so most certainly all Roman Catholics should take heed to her words... "do whatsoever He tells you."

Since the goal of all good Roman Catholics is to get to heaven, let us look in the Bible and do what Mary said to do; see what Jesus says and do it.

Jesus says... He is the only one that can be your Saviour. "Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." (John 14:6)

He did not say... To trust in saints, the pope, or even His mother (Mary) to save you. "[T]here is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved." (Acts 4:12)

Jesus says... Faith in Him, is the only kind that can save you. "Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him." (John 3:36)

He did not say... Special sacrifices or good works were needed to help save you. "[T]o the one who does not work but believes in Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted as righteousness," (Romans 4:5)

Jesus says... Eternal life is the only kind He gives. "Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears My word and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life." (John 5:24)

He did not say... It was probationary life which depended on our keeping it or we'd lose it. "I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of My hand." (John 10:28)

Jesus says... God's words are the only authority to follow. "The one who rejects Me and does not receive My words has a judge; the word that I have spoken will judge him on the last day." (John 12:48)

He did not say... Traditions or the commandments of men were His words. "[I]n vain do they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men." and "thus making void the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down. And many such things you do." (Mark 7:7, 13)

Friend, you can right now be saved and know that you have eternal life, if you will put your "complete" faith in Jesus Christ, and stop relying on yourself, church, sacraments, or anything else to save or help save you. Jesus is the Saviour. Do you believe He can save you, or don't you?

"I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life." (1 John 5:13)

The very moment you completely trust Jesus Christ as your Saviour and Lord... that very moment... you are saved forever!


Do you choose to believe what Jesus says, which is, you know that you are a sinner, and for the first time you really believe that Jesus Christ can do for you what He says. "For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." (Romans 10:13)

Do you feel this article is anti-catholic? Friend, the reason we publish this article is because we love you and do not want to see you go to Hell when you die. If you feel this article is anti-Catholic, you better re-examine your beliefs. Anyone who rejects what Jesus Christ says is... anti-christ. "Whoever is not with Me is against Me, and whoever does not gather with Me scatters." (Matthew 12:30)
