Apocryphal accounts of her life:
Protoevangelium St James
Saint Thomas - translation by St Jerome
The Saints

It would take hundreds of books to describe the life of Our Lady, so this is just a humble presentation attempting to make us know her better.


The Blessed Virgin Mary was born to St. Joachim and St. Anne, to be the famous WOMAN promised in the Proto-evangelium who would crush the head of the serpent. By being exempt from original sin and living a life in perfect fulfilment of the Will of God, She was visited by the Archangel  Gabriel with this message:

"Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with Thee. Our Lady - Virgin Mary, mother of God
Behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and shalt bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the most High; and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of David his father; and he shall reign in the house of Jacob for ever. "

She conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit the Saviour of the world Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Our Lady lived a humble life as the Mother of Our Saviour, and as the spouse of St. Joseph, She lived the most virtuous life, and accompanied Jesus all the way to Calvary.

The Blessed Virgin Mary didn't die in the human way because She was exempt from original sin, and She was immaculate. She passed from this physical existence into the realm of the spirit in an ecstasy of love. The Fathers of the Church speak about her "dormition", and that after three days She was assumed in body and soul into Heaven.

She is the Queen of Heaven and the Queen of all Creation, her holiness surpasses the holiness of all the saints and angels put together. By her dignity of being the Mother of God, She is our advocate before Him and at the foot of the cross She was given to us in the person of John as our Mother.
" Behold your mother "

She is the woman clothed with the sun as portrayed in the Apocalypse, She is the New Jerusalem, the City of God, the Mountain of Zion so spoken of in the Holy Scriptures, She is the Living Tabernacle of the Divinity. A true devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary will lead us to Jesus.

Her message is " Do whatever He tells you "
