By Joe NewbyOn Tuesday, Breitbart reported that the Maryknoll missionaries — a Catholic group organized in 1911 and registered as the Catholic Foreign Mission Society of America — have apparently cast their lot with Greta Thunberg, the young, angry climate activist who scolded the world at the United Nations, going so far as to compare her to the Virgin Mary.
“Christians getting their knickers all in a twist over the passionate, articulate & knowledgeable witness of Greta Thunberg because of her age seem to overlook the age of the Virgin Mary at the time of the Annunciation,” the group said on Twitter. “Young women can & have changed the world.”

Just to bring you up to speed, here’s video of Thunberg’s very angry speech at the United Nations:
During her speech, Thunberg said world leaders “have stolen my dreams, my childhood, with your empty words and yet I’m one of the lucky ones.”
“People are suffering, people are dying, entire ecosystems are collapsing,” she added. “We are in the beginning of the mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!”
One person responded:
The Blessed Virgin Mary presumably had a less abrasive personality than Ms. Thunberg exhibits.

We tend to agree.
One cleric noted:
Mary in her Fiat submitted herself entirely to the will of God. She is indeed be a great patroness and role model for all girls: pure and virginal, Caring for Jesus, preparing him for his ministry and walking with him in his Passion.

Somehow, I find it hard to imagine Thunberg submitting to much of anything.
Another person noted:
Mary was filled with grace from God. Greta on the other hand was filled with Socialistic ideas planted by the world.
