Tract:
Why Is Mary Crying?
Claim: Devotion to Mary doesn't please her. It breaks her heart.The Big Question: Is that true? Let's find out.Above is a nice example of appeal to emotion. It's interesting what Jack Chick wants to achieve by appealing to the emotions of his readers using such words as "Poor Mary. Her heart is broken..." Really?

Well, the faithful are doing what Mary herself prophesied in the Bible concerning howgenerations to come would honor her. See for example:For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for,
behold, from henceforth allgenerations shall call me blessed
. (Luke 1:48 KJV emphasis mine)The question one should sincerely ask himself/herself, "Am I also part of the generation that callMary blessed as she said in the Scriptures?" Think about this deeply.Of course she knew this and she also knew that God is with her.

Here, Jack Chick presents some half-truths and misrepresentation to achieve his anti-Catholic propaganda.Chick says, "In Luke 1:46-47, Mary had already admitted that she needed a Saviour. . ." Let'sexamine that verse in context.And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth allgenerations shall call me blessed. For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy ishis name. And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation. He hath shewedstrength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. He hath putdown the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree. He hath filled the hungry withgood things; and the rich he hath sent empty away. He hath holpen his servant Israel, inremembrance of his mercy; As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever.(Luke 1:46-55 KJV)
