The Blessed Virgin Mary has long been loved and honored by Catholics. We hold her in a very special place in our hearts as she gave birth to Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Jesus' mother was also present at his crucifixion. The Sorrowful Mother Mary wept at his feet as he hung upon the cross.
The Virgin Mary has been known to appear to people around the world to share messages of hope and inspiration. Mary has also offered warnings that we need live a good and holy life following Jesus. These visions by people are called apparitions. There have been nine approved apparitions by the Catholic church. The Blessed Mother Mary has been known to intercede by granting aid to the sick, the suffering and by helping the unborn.
I hope that you will find the many Madonna statues, rosaries, medals, water fonts and prints beautiful and spiritually up lifting. Having the Blessed Mother in your home is a reminder of love, inspiration and hope. Let us pray that one day we too will join her in heaven with her son Jesus.
“Never be afraid of loving the Blessed Virgin too much. You can never love her more than Jesus did.” Saint Maximilian Kolbe
