9" Mary Expecting Statue
Blessed Virgin Mary
Patron of Mothers
Feast Day: The Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God – January 1
The Blessed Virgin Mary is the most lovely and loving of all God’s creations. Through God’s grace, Mary was conceived in her mother’s womb without Original Sin. Mary in turn gave her whole self and life to God. It is her fiat, her words “Be it done to me according to thy word”, which brings Christ into the world. In this figure we contemplate Mary's time of expectation. She is Our Lady of Sweet Hope.
How we learn and know of our blessed mother is though the discovery of her personal life, her places of honor in the life of the Church, her role in the plan of our salvation and her intercession to God on our behalf. Devotion to her not only comes from the writings of the saints and the church Fathers, but also due to the many Marian apparitions and reports of miracles and healings.
