If I had to pick one of the most misunderstood of the Marian Virtues it would be Blind Obedience. As adults we think of obedience as something that we expect from children. As we grow from children to adults our idea of obedience changes. Instead of obeying our parents requests, if we don’t want to, we don’t have to. We owe them the respect to hear what they have to say and consider their advice, but we aren’t obligated to obey in the same way we would have been when we were children. I think this is also the reason why so many people have problems with Ephesians 5:22 “Wives, be subject to your husbands as you are to the Lord.”
