Reception: Mary, the mother of God (NT)

Mary the Mother of God

What should I know about Mary the Mother of God?


1. Mary was a real person.

Mary really lived here on earth. Mary’s parents were Joachim and Anne. She lived a long, long time ago. What do you think her life would have been like?


2. Mary never sinned. 

Because Mary had a special calling from God, she never did anything that would offend or hurt God. She was full of grace and virtue.  


3. Mary is the mother of Jesus.

Mary was an important part of God’s plan to bring Jesus, Our Saviour, into the world. She loved and cared for Jesus from the time He was a baby to the time He went back to Heaven.


4. Mary is our Heavenly Mother.  

Mary has a special job to care for us and protect us. She wants all of God’s children to be with her in heaven one day.


5. Mary wants you to talk to her.  

When we pray the Hail Mary or a rosary, we “talk” to Mary. She loves it when children come to her in prayer. We can ask her to help us become more like Jesus.
