Why Do Catholics Do That?

Why do Catholics have so many titles for Mary?

Everything we say about Mary, ultimately, is about Jesus, including her “devotional” titles. Each title highlights an aspect of God’s saving plan and Mary’s role in it. Many of them have to do with her sinlessness and her motherhood. For example, Mary is called the “Mirror of Justice”, Theotokos (“God-bearer”), “Seat of Wisdom”, “House of Gold”, etc. Mary’s titles – like Mary – are meant to draw our focus not to Mary, but to Jesus. Mary always leads us to her Son.
