Blessed Virgin Mary
Figurine comes nicely displayed in a clear fronted box with the the Story of the saint on the outside and a prayer card inside.
The Mother of the Son of God was chosen as a young virgin of Nazareth, who regarded herself the least worthy to receive such an honor. Filled with courage and faith, Mary replied to the Angel Gabriel’s announcement of the role in the arrival of the Messiah by saying, “I am the maid-servant of the Lord. Let it be done to me as you say” (Luke 1, 38).
From the beginning of all eternity, God wished that Mary would be the instrument by which His son would come into the world. From the first moment of her conception, Mary was sanctified by the Holy Spirit, and favoured by God during her life because of her piety. As the Mother of our Lord and Savior, Mary is considered the patron of mothers, but as Mary is also considered the spiritual mother of all, she is invoked to meet every need. No other person was so loved by Jesus than His own beloved mother.
From the earliest times in the Church, it has been believed that upon Mary’s death, around the year 48, she was taken body and soul into Heaven. God would not allow the body of the Mother of His Son, who had never committed the least sin, to remain in the earth. The greatest of the saints, Mary is a powerful intercessor on our behalf, as Jesus can refuse her nothing.
Feast of Queenship Mary: August 22
Hail Holy Queen
Hail Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy; hail our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve:
To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving.
O sweet Virgin Mary.
