Why the "Virgin Mary" cannot possibly be "watching over us"

We recently saw a story about how the Pope is traveling on “our side of the world” and one of his stops will be in Quito, Ecuador – a city that is being “watched over by a statue of the Virgin Mary.” 

I hate to be the bearer of bad news for those who believe in bowing down before statues of Mary, but Mary cannot possibly be “watching over the city” because:  (1) Mary wasn’t divine and hasn’t been resurrected, and dead humans don’t come back to “watch over anyone.”  (2)   Mary is dead in her grave!  She was alive the day her Son died and there won’t be another “resurrection  until He returns (see our article about why "the virgin Mary cannot possibly be our intercessor"). 

Mary is quite simply not a "heavenly being" so HOW could she possibly be "watching over" the city of Quito?  Furthermore, we need to quit calling her “the Virgin Mary because Mary was NOT a virgin when she died, because she had other children (see Matthew 1:25, 12:36 and 13:55-56; Mark 6:3; Luke 2:7).


  1. The Catholics will die fighting with the belief of Mary as a Virgin or most people called her "Mama Mary". Like i used to when i was a Catholic, i went distant with this belief but i thank Abba YHWH for showing and revealing me the truth that there should be no Elohin other than Him and i thank you also for Refiner's Fire web site for strongly standing for the truth. If i have not found your web then i might still be lurking around serving other gods. May Abba YHWH bless you more wisdom and knowledge.

    Shalo B'Shalama.

    1. Thank you so much for those kind words! We thank YHWH that He allowed you to find HIS Truth, and we are humbled to know we had a small part in it!
