Mary

I just read that today is the Feast of the Holy Name of Mary. This is new to me. The only reason I'm mentioning it is that I remember reading when my kids were doing a high school history curriculum, that praying to Mary began during Europe's plagues. I don't know if that's true.

What was mentioned was that people were so distraught, and maybe mad at God, that the mother of Jesus seemed more approachable. That people started praying to her thinking she'd pass it on to Jesus.

Like I said, I don't know if this is true. Maybe someone could enlighten me.
