When you become devoted to Mary, she becomes devoted to you. After all, love is devotion. The Early Church Fathers recognized her as the Ark of the New & Everlasting Covenant. Since her departure from this life, men & women in all subsequent generations have called her blessed, because he who is mighty has done great things for her, and no Protestant can overrule God. To call her blessed fulfills scripture, while refusing to do so makes you a very unrecognizable stranger to Christ.
