As I wrote, whether it is officially sanctioned as theologically
correct or not, Mary will continue to be venerated, adored, revered,
deified, apotheosized by millions of Catholics who do not follow
Jesuitical debates on what constitutes worship.
The Roman church reversed itself on excluding what it regarded as
Marian cults when it became apparent that the Church would be greatly
weakened by their exclusion. I'm sure you know this political history.
